The mechanics, operations of the scientific pyrotechnics is a very delicate and sensitive process, that is most appreciated by the Rotary Club of Big Bear Lake Club team of men and women who work beside Suhay.  The barges are precisely constructed to design the special night of Fireworks Show over the Lake, for A ONE-TIME EVENT!     

The July 4th 2018 Event has been financially supported by the generosity of the people of Big Bear Valley.  For the Sponsors List, SEE:  http://www.bigbearlake.net/EPIC-Entertainment/A-Summer-Evening-in-Big-Bear-Lake-
