  • “Jumping Jack Flash” Stones Tribute at the Cave

Apr 16, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

It began for them the way it always has–in a dimly lit, smoky nightclub. But who that was present at those long-ago performances by the Rolling Stones would have guessed that they’d become icons, and perhaps the most revered and enduring act of all-time? Imagine walking into a nearby historic theater and happening upon a performance by the youthful Stones!

They’re all there; Mick is prancing and gyrating, Keith is ripping licks and prowling the stage with his trusty beat-up Fender guitar. Charlie and Bill are intense as they lay down the back-beat, and Brian Jones looks regal as he lords over his stage.

But there’s something amiss; although this incredible scenario has most certainly taken place, this isn’t swinging London circa 1964 but rather, your town today.

Put down that pint, mate… take a closer look–it’s Jumping Jack Flash, the world’s greatest tribute to the Rolling Stones!

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear 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.

  • Big Bear Airport Young Eagles Program KIDS FLY FREE!

Big Bear Airport Young Eagles Program KIDS FLY FREE!

The Young Eagles program is held at the Airport and flys on the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to noon, May through September. This is a wonderful experience for young flyers. The Young Eagles program was started by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in an effort to stimulate interest in aviation for young people.

Children between the ages of 8 and 17 are offered a free airplane ride around the Big Bear area by pilots from the Pilot’s Association. Pilots must be a member of the Pilot’s Association and the EAA in order to participate in this program. We have run this program for five years and have flown thousands of children. Each child will be given a pre-flight review of the basics of flight and the main parts of an airplane prior to the flight.

No appointments are necessary, but each child must be accompanied by a parent or adult who must sign a release of liability for the child and can then take pictures of the happy flyer after their flight.

Due to inclement weather at times in Big Bear, Young Eagles flights may be cancelled at short notice.

For further information on this program call Roger Schmidt at (909)547-0832. For additional background information and activity suggestions log on to the Young Eagles web site at www.youngeagles.org.
