The band is comprised of vocalist/artist/actor Jesika Miller, vocalist/film maker/photographer Rebecca Fishman, drummer Ned Brower (Rooney, Mike Viola), guitarist/producer/engineer Taylor Locke (Rooney, Taylor Locke and the Roughs, The Great Indoors), and bassist/producer/engineer Nic Johns (ROOM8, Ben Lee, Margaret Cho.)

Rumours has meticulously put together a show that spares no detail. From period accurate equipment and costumes to spot on characterizations and musical performances, Rumours takes you back to a time when music was still an unbridled cultural experience and bands weren’t afraid to put on a show.

Relive the rock and roll magic with Rumours.

21st Annual Holcomb Valley Trail Run

Jun 11, 2017 | 07:00AM – 03:00PM

Starting at the water’s edge of Big Bear Lake, the Holcomb Valley Trail Run brings runners deep into the heart of the most scenic area in Big Bear, Holcomb Valley. Breathtaking views of the San Gorgonio Wilderness Area, Big Bear Lake, and the surrounding valley can be seen from the miles of single track running along the Pacific Crest Trail.  The Holcomb Valley Trail Run offers three separate distances: a 33-mile race, a 15-mile race, and a 7-mile race. Sections of the Pacific Crest Trail are part of each race course. This is some of the best trail running in Southern California; so sign up early, the race has sold out the past 5 years.

Now in it’s 21st year, the Holcomb Valley Trail Run was established by Gary & Pam Kalina in 1997. Gary was an avid runner; he realized that some of the best trail running in Southern California was right here in Big Bear. Their involvement is crucial to the success of the event. Gary and Pam had decided after 15 years of event directing and coordination it was time to close that chapter in their life. Team Big Bear now runs the event in their honor

He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.

The 2016/2017 winter season has seen above average snow and rainfall, compared to years in the recent past. Does this mean the drought is over? Maybe for some parts of California, but not for Big Bear Valley.

As an added bonus, one of the homes will feature a landscape that is both low-water use and fire-wise.

This year’s theme, “Water Conservation…A Big Bear Way of Life,” will focus on Big Bear’s unique water situation and how everyone can do their part to conserve water while still creating beautiful and exciting yards and gardens.

The tour will once again include the DWP’s Xeriscape Demonstration Garden on Fox Farm Road, in front of the Community Garden, with native plant expert Orchid Black on hand to answer questions. In addition, there will be a variety of homeowner gardens, some landscaped by professionals and others by the homeowners. No matter your budget, you’ll find solutions for creating low-maintenance, drought tolerant gardens right here in Big Bear Valley.

So mark your calendars for the 15th annual Xeriscape Garden Tour to take place on Saturday, July 15th. Participants can begin the FREE self-guided tour anytime between 9 am and noon starting at Eminger’s Mountain Nursery, located at 41223 Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear Lake, across the street from the Denny’s Restaurant.  A tour booklet, which includes the locations and directions for the tour stops, and helpful information on Xeriscape gardening in the mountains, will be handed out at the starting location.

In other words, any way you enjoy the trails up here using muscle power you will love participating in this event!

Aug 20, 2016 | 05:00PM – 10:00PM

Music in the Mountains #5 with “The Long Run” Eagles Tribute at the Discovery Center will take place on Saturday September 3rd.

After months of painstaking preparation rehearsing a long list of The Eagles’ chart-topping hits, The Long Run set out to win over audiences across the USA.

They quickly became regarded as the finest Eagles tribute band in the country by consistently delivering the lush harmonies and rich instrumental arrangements that made The Eagles an unforgettable part of rock history. The Long Run continues to successfully blend the classic Eagles sound into their own genuine live performance style, delighting audiences young and old with faithful recreations of some of the best music ever written.

The Kodiak 100 Ultramarathon

Sep 16, 2016 12:00PM – Sep 18, 2016 12:00AM

Trail running in the San Bernardino Mountains at it’s finest will be on display for the Kodiak 100 miler, the  Kodiak 50 miler and Kodiak 50K. Southern California mountains tend to surprise people, especially in September-its phenomenal conditions. It’s typically sunny, the temperature is almost always comfortable, considering this course is ALL between 5,100′ and 10,000′ .

The nights can be that nice cool Alpine chill, but no where near freezing. (if you’re  a shirtless runner, you may want to reconsider at least for this night section. Day times- late September, should be stellar- with temps in the 60′s and 70′s.

It’s pretty reliable and trusty weather in Late September, high likely hood of great race conditions.

100 Mile Race Start – Friday 12 Noon

Front 50K Race Start – Friday 12:01 PM

50 Mile Race Start – Saturday 6AM

Back 50K Race Start – Saturday 8AM

BIG Change for 2016 – Reversing Course! In an effort to keep things interesting we will be reversing course and running clockwise around the lake! Did that just put the summit of Sugarloaf at mile 75? Why yes, yes it did. Some will ask, why would you do that? It takes out the Siberia Creek climb which is the highlight of the course. And they would have a point. However, the reverse direction presents it’s own set of unique characteristics and challenges. The run from Grandview to the bottom of Siberia Creek is absolutely gorgeous, the climbs in this direction are STEEP,  Sugarloaf Mountain and the technical terrain leading to and from it will be a MAJOR factor late in the run. Regardless of direction this course is tough and beautiful!

Finish Festival and Awards at the Village & Pine Knot in The Village of Big Bear Lake.
