Big Bear’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular & Events
The 4th of July Fireworks Celebration in Big Bear, hosted by the Rotary Club, is rated one of the biggest and best shows in Southern California. The fireworks are shot from a barge off of Pine Knot Marina and views from on and around the lake are stunning. The show starts after sundown, between 8:45 and 9:15 pm.

Grab a Free Spot Along the Lakeshore
There are several spots around the lake that provide perfect viewing areas. On the south shore, Meadow Park, Ski Beach, Veterans Park, and Rotary Park have good views. There are several spots along the north shore from the East Boat Launch to Grout Bay with views of the fireworks. Stanfield Cutoff is a prime viewing spot, but get there early because fills up quickly.
Gather with the crowd in the Village to watch the fireworks from a variety of spots. The crowd usually fills the streets during the show.
