In Big Bear Valley Okterberfest and Halloween have become synonymous with special events
for both residents as well as visitors to the mountain community. For thousands
of ‘non-local’ attendees from as far away as Germany, the Okterberfest at the Convention Center at Big
Bear Lake is an annual destination.
as #1 Okterberfest in Southern California, the 45th
Annual Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest has hosted many, to the delightful German
entrees, log sawing, polka dancing, and unlimited celebrations of the beautiful
Fall season that the foliage and mountain environment naturally provides to
everyone who wishes to partake.

Big Bear Valley. Can you identify the bear?

Center at Big Bear Lake is festively decorated for the annual event.
the Village of Big Bear Lake is always a huge attraction for adults as well
as the children. Often I have noticed photographers out getting their shots of the Autumn
red and yellow colors that line Pine Knot Avenue and Village Drive. It’s really
a fun experience to slowly cruise the Village and see all the scarecrow creations
that merchants have so cleverly been displayed. Costumed ghosts and goblins will
begin walking door-to-door, late Saturday afternoon while prepared for another
chilly celebration when shops and vendors welcome Trick or Treaters.
At all of these events and others through-out
the year, please be security conscious. Security services are provided but it
is parent’s responsibility to keep watch over their children.
Have an enjoyable HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
