The events start May 1st. with a twilight ride starting from Maggio’s Pizza at 5:30pm. Many consider Big Bear to the cycling capital of Southern California, and the Big Bear Cycling Association is one of the most active cycling groups anywhere in the country. Owing to Big Bear’s natural beauty and varied terrain the association offers a broad spectrum of rides for all skill levels and some planned specifically as family events.

For a fun night of comedic relief, and family-friendly slapstick, head over to the Big Bear Performing Arts Center for the Big Bear High School Performing Arts Department’s presentation of a Panto version of “The Wizard of Oddz.” Inspired by the comedic style started in England, this loosely follows Dorothy and her friends trying to get back to Kansas with some very funny changes and audience participation along the way. You’ll want to order tickets in advance for the performances. Runs May 2-3-4 at 7pm and May 4-5 at 2pm.

Music lovers will have their choice of great events in May as well. The Cave continues with its lineup of great bands. May kicks off on Friday the 3rd with a performance by X, one of the most influential punk bands from the past 40 years. The following night will see Anuhea, the Hawaiian songstress bring her unique sound to The Cave. And here’s a list of other acts appearing throughout the month.
