Big Bear Lake, California (PRWEB) July 16, 2015
As Southern California’s largest recreational lake, Big Bear Lake has plenty to do and see throughout the year. This summer is no exception, especially with the ever-popular Big Bear PaddleFest taking place July 18.
Alderwood Resort Group, a luxury vacation expert, says Snow Lake Lodge here is the place to stay while exploring the area. Just make sure to fit in time to either take part in or watch the 8th annual Big Bear PaddleFest, which takes place just east of the Pine Knot Marina. The event is free to the public who want to view the races; however there are entry fees to participate.
Just as in years past, Big Bear PaddleFest will feature paddle sport clinics, a vendor expo and racing in all paddle sports categories. Participants can sign up for everything from beginner to expert levels in kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding.
Alderwood Resort Group says registration begins at 6 a.m. During this time, there will be a mandatory quagga mussel inspection of the water crafts. The races themselves are scheduled to start at 7 a.m. with the 20K, around-the-lake racing. A stand-up paddling yoga class is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. followed by 5K races at 8:30 a.m. There is also a stand-up paddling yoga class scheduled for 9 a.m. before the 10K races. The latter races are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. The Kids Bear Challenge is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. followed by a Kids Fun Race for ages 5 to 12. Stand-up paddleboarding sprints are scheduled for 11:30 a.m., and the stand-up paddleboarding relay races are scheduled for noon.
