The last gasps of summer are echoing around our homes. They take the form of rushed mornings, conflicting schedules, and the recognition that life would be simpler if we had a fleet of cars with drivers for the little ones. If school hasn’t already started back up for your family, it soon will. Even if you had a family vacation over the summer, Labor Day is a great way to have one last hurrah before fully settling in with the new schedule when school gets in full swing.
Labor Day falls on Monday, September 7th this year, and the mountain is packed with great events for the long weekend. We often get booked solid, so be sure to call us right away to book your getaway. We reported on a couple of the Labor Day events in last week’s blog, so be sure to check that out (here) for more info on the Car Show and the Annual Mountain Men gathering. Here are a few more of the fun things happening that weekend:
The annual Fall Festival Arts & Crafts Show takes over the Big Bear Convention Center for the weekend, and it promises to be a great event for the entire family. Browse the many booths filled with crafts and artworks created by local artisans. This one is great for the kids, because many of the artists will be creating works live at the event. You’ll see pottery thrown, dolls crafted, unique jewelry, and hand-carved bears. There will be some great food and live entertainment as well. Doors are open from 10am to 5pm on the 5th and 6th.
The Busy Bears Annual Quilt Show at Big Bear Middle School in on September 6th this year from 10am to 5pm. This annual event showcases some of the most amazing and creative works of stitchery you’ll find anywhere. It’s a great opportunity to see this centuries-old craft close up, and many of the quilts are on sale with proceeds benefiting local Big Bear charities. It’s a unique opportunity to walk away with an instant family heirloom lovingly crafted by a local artisan. There’s a $5 admission fee to benefit the charities. Visit their website for more info: http://www.busybearsquiltguild.com
The weekend also have numerous events for the cyclists sponsored by the Big Bear Cycling Association and ongoing nature walks at the Discovery Center. Whatever event draws you to Big Bear, we confident the best part of your visit will be the comfort you experience in your Five Star Vacation Rental. There’s really no better way to end a full day of fun family activities than to retreat to the privacy and luxury you’ll find in one of our Big Bear vacation rentals.
