The Fun Run at Big Bear Lake is a 3 day car show held in the Village of Big Bear Lake California. The event includes about 500 pre-assigned parking spaces, a Saturday afternoon 'Cruise Around the Lake' and a Sunday morning drive through awards presentation. The event will be our 29th annual show, and over the years has earned a very favorable reputation. The Fun Run is always held over the second weekend in August. The streets are generally full of spectators, and a summer shower may develop. This is a fun event.
You're always welcome to come and check out all of the beautiful classic cars every Fun Run as well as other BBLACC car shows even if you're not a contestant! There is absolutely no charge nor admission fee for attending as a visitor. Please come and enjoy the event!

There are more than 500 cars on display, many vendors for food/drinks and souvenirs as well as Big Bear Village businesses, great live music, many people with similar interests and beautiful weather. The "Cruise Around the Lake" event is a fun way to see all of the cars driving by. For more Big Bear information, please visit:
