Here is some news about the fireworks from the City of Big Bear Lake:
City Council Authorizes July 4th Fireworks with Additional Precautions
The City Council conducted a special meeting last night, and voted unanimously to move forward with the July 4 fireworks show in Big Bear Lake. This annual tradition will continue in 2020, however, additional safety measures are being implemented to keep our community safe.
Due to COVID-19, the City and Visit Big Bear have partnered to finance the July 4 fireworks, with significant volunteer assistance provided by the Rotary Club. This year’s show is expected to be as spectacular as previous years’ shows, but with important modifications:
The barge from which the fireworks are launched is being repositioned in the middle of the lake to increase the visibility of the fireworks from more locations around the lake to enable viewers to spread out more.
Viewers are encouraged to view the fireworks from their home or vehicle to avoid interactions with others.
Viewers are advised to maintain at least 6 ft. of separation from other groups while viewing the fireworks.
Viewers should wear face coverings while viewing the fireworks near others.
The City and Visit Big Bear will be distributing free face masks to viewers at Rotary Park, Veterans Park, Meadow Park, and The Village, and perhaps additional locations.
Additional hand washing stations and portable toilets will be in place at Rotary Park, Veterans Park, Meadow Park, and The Village, and perhaps additional locations.
The July 4 fireworks show will be live-streamed on multiple platforms to enable those who are not comfortable venturing out to view the show.
More details will be provided in the next two weeks, and the City will also be considering additional measures to keep our community safe during the fireworks show. Source: City of Big Bear Lake
