July 4th

Get Ready for Fireworks!
Evening of July 4 @ Big Bear Lake in Century Park


At approximately 9:30 p.m. on the evening of July 4, the skies over Big Bear and Little Bear Lake will be set ablaze as Melrose Fireworks presents a dazzling aerial display of fireworks. Enjoy from the park, the area parking lots – or even your own back yard – as we celebrate Independence Day.

Please follow appropriate public health mandates, including social distancing. Watch for updates as we get closer to the day!

Note that in an abundance of caution and in keeping with current best practices, there will be no July 4th Parade or Concert. It is our goal to maintain a healthy environment not only for residents and their families, but also for the groups who must plan ahead to take part in these events. We hope to be back better than ever in 2022!
