We had another shot of winter weather in Big Bear Lake the last few days (what’s up Mother Nature?!?), but the weather is expected to be spectacular over the Memorial Day Weekend with highs in the low 70’s and sunny skies.

Friday night’s meteor shower is just the beginning of a very “starry” weekend in Big Bear. Enjoy the show from the lake on a boat cruise or attend the ‘Campfire Star Party’ at the Discovery Center. There are also a few ‘star parties’ going on. See the flyer below for details.

Saturday brings the much anticipated “StarLight Festival” to Big Bear with exhibits, hands-on activities and a whole lot of fun for all ages. Saturday night, check out Jefferson Starship live in concert at The Cave in The Village.

Sunday, take part in the Big Bear Half-Marathon and Memorial Fun Run. The Lifestyle Expo with vendors and live music is FREE.

On Monday, take the family to the Antique Car Club ‘Show & Shine’ and Pinewood Derby.

Add to these unique events all of the dozens of summertime activities available and you get a weekend full of fun and memories!

If you find yourself in need of a place to stay, visit RS Vacations on our website and score a great deal on a cabin rental. See you soon!!

Remember the Fallen * Memorial Day 2013

Read Full Post »

File:Graves at Arlington on Memorial Day.JPGMemorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

Annual Decoration Days for particular cemeteries are held on a Sunday in late spring or early summer in some rural areas of the American South, notably in the mountains. In cases involving a family graveyard where remote ancestors as well as those who were deceased more recently are buried, this may take on the character of an extended family reunion to which some people travel hundreds of miles. People gather on the designated day and put flowers on graves and renew contacts with kinfolk and others. There often is a religious service and a “dinner on the ground,” the traditional term for a potluck meal in which people used to spread the dishes out on sheets or tablecloths on the grass. It is believed that this practice began before the American Civil War and thus may reflect the real origin of the “memorial day” idea.

Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, living or dead.

Whether you get the chance to visit a loved one’s burial site, get together with extended family, or just have the day off, take some time to remember those who lost their lives establishing and maintaining the freedoms we enjoy today.
