It’s become a Big Bear Thanksgiving tradition. Wake up and run, walk or jog in the Big Bear Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28, to make room for the big feast later in the day.
Big Bear pays tribute to veterans Monday, Nov. 11, at Veterans Park. The American Legion Riders Chapter 584, The American Legion Post 584 and the city of Big Bear Lake host a special program to honor local veterans who have served and are serving in the armed forces.
The lights are going up on the big tree in front of Bear Valley Community Hospital. On Saturday, Nov. 9, those lights will shine brightly in tribute to loved ones. The tree will remain illuminated until midnight Jan. 31.
