What to do for Memorial Day Weekend:

Saturday, May 28, 2011, the Big Bear Valley Historical Museum opens for the season.  This museum offers so much history about Big Bear, how the Serrano Indians were the first to occupy the land and the evolution of Big Bear from 1843 along with lots of Big Bear trivia.  For example, did you know that Big Bear was almost chosen as the county seat? This is a quaint little place that will stay firmly entrenched in your mind when you think of Big Bear. Visit www.bigbearhistory.org/, click on Historical Museum for more information. 

Also on Saturday the Big Bear Discover Center holds one of their many Summer Concert Series, put on by “Singers and Songwriters”  Be at the Discovery Center at 7 p.m. on North Shore Drive to take in this fun event.  The Summer Concert series profits go towards forest restoration.

Take a few minutes to look at the Big Bear Discovery website, checking out the amphitheater, the events, and all they have to offer.  You’ll find canoe and kayak tours, hiking and an array of things to do each week.  Explore www.bigbeardiscoverycenter.com and plan some of their activities in your itinerary.   

May 28, and 29, 2011 is the Old Time Country Fair at Moonridge Animal Park.  This event is a blast for you and your family.  There are games, arts and craftsand a contest where you guess which of the three bears at the zoo can eat the most pie. Go to www.moonridgezoo.org under events for details.  I can’t wait to go.
