Shortly after 7:00 a.m. this morning, a big rig carrying lumber overturned on Highway 38 approximately 5 miles east of Angelus Oaks. As a result, there is a hard closure in place on Highway 38 from Angelus Oaks to Lake Williams. The closure is anticipated to last 4-6 hours. Information will be updated as it becomes available as crews work to remove the truck and debris from the roadway.

Doves-BigBearCACOC_11276_CruisinBruisinCarShow EblastDid you know that 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime? Or that over 3 million children witness domestic violence in their own homes every year? Those numbers are staggering to me and make me both sad and angry at the same time. Here in Big Bear, we have a wonderful organization that is dedicated to both helping victims of domestic violence and educating the community about it: DOVES – Domestic Violence Education and Services.

DOVES is a non-profit organization that depends on donations from people like you and me to continue its services in our community. They often have special events to raise money and awareness to help accomplish it. This weekend, they are having a car show called Cruisin’ to Stop Bruisin’ at the Big Bear Snow Play parking lot. There will be classic cars, music, food, raffle prizes and more. Admission is free, however donations are accepted (and encouraged!). Do you have a classic car that you would like to show? You can help out that way as well! See the Flyers below and to the left for more information. Thank you!

Come on out and enjoy a day of fun with the family while helping out a wonderful and very important cause. If you need a cabin, visit us at RSVacations.net. We still have our spring rates and specials in place. Book your Big Bear Cabin today!

National Trails Day:

Hiking LogoVolunteers are needed, adults and youth, to help perform trail maintenance within the South Shore Trail Network, located adjacent to Big Bear Lake.  The network is a multi-use trail system consisting of 23 miles of newly-designated trails targeted for work in compliance with trail standards.  Pine Knot Trail will be the focus.

Here’s the schedule:

8:30am – Check In; Aspen Glen Picnic Area – 40101 Mill Creek Rd, Big Bear Lake
9:00am – Let’s hit the trails!
12:30pm – Lunch

Big Bear Lake Village Summer Wine Walk:

WineWalkFlyerThe Tubes in Concert:

The Tubes are a San Francisco-based rock band whose 1975 debut album included the hit single “White Punks on Dope”. During its first fifteen years or so, the band’s live performances combined quasi-pornography with wild satires of media, consumerism, and politics. They are perhaps best remembered for their 1983 single “She’s a Beauty”, a top 10 U.S. hit with a frequently-played music video in the early days of MTV; and in the 1980 film Xanadu singing the rock portion of the cross-genre song “Dancin'” opposite a big band.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue with state of the art sound and lighting that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30 pm Concert starts at 7:30 pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.

Location: The Cave at 40789 Village Drive, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315
