More Big Bear Fun in May

May is a great time to visit Big Bear. In our last blog we detailed some great reasons to plan your Five Star Vacation Rental getaway for May. But May is a big month for things to do in Big Bear, so we’re exploring a few more events this week.

Anglers will rejoice at the opportunities that await them in Big Bear during May. In addition to the usual great fishing on the lake, the lake will be specially stocked for the Hall Family May Trout Classic on May 20th and 21st.  There are $8000 in prizes slated to be awarded and Bass Pro Shops is donating a new kayak as well. The entry fee is $75, and kids 16 and under can fish for free. Proceeds will go to keep trophy-sized fish stocked in Big Bear Lake. It’s a great chance to enjoy a couple of good fishing days, catch some big fish, and maybe win some prizes too.  You can download the entry form at this link.

On May 20th Big Bear is kicking off its first annual PubFest. This is a great way to sample the wide range of beverages and foods available in The Village. You’ll get a 5 oz. souvenir tasting glass to sample some diverse drinks and craft beers along the way, and many locations will be offering complimentary appetizers as well.  It’s almost a movable feast. You can get more info and register online here.

Region capture 41The Western Mountain Steam Festival lands with its unique blend of great food, handcrafted jewelry, clothing, artwork, and Steampunk items on May 28th and 29th at Pederson’s Mill in Fawnskin. Organizers are expecting to see a diverse crowd of cowboys, time travelers, pirates, entertainers and more. If you’ve ever wanted to delve deeper into the creative world of Steampunk, this is your chance to dive into this amazing alternate history launched from the bygone days of steam power.
