The first official day of spring was March 20. But you don’t have to look at a calendar to be able to recognize that spring has sprung in Lake Arrowhead. Here are just a few of the signs that you would be hard pressed to miss:
- Temperatures are in the 80s. A light winter has ushered in an early season for boating. If you don’t have your boat on the lake yet, it’s time to get it back on the water.
- Birds are singing.
- Bees are buzzing.
- Woodland animals are nesting.
- The Rim of the World School District is on Spring Break.
- A mild winter has given rise to early spring blooms. The Dogwoods are getting ready to bloom. Hiking trails have been cleaned and cleared. Volunteers have been working hard to get things in ship-shape.
- Lake Arrowhead Village Farmer’s Market Nights and free summer concerts will resume on May 9.
When you think of spring, do your thoughts turn to scrubbing your house top-to-bottom? Not to worry-spring means a lot more than time to spring clean, especially in Lake Arrowhead:
- Easter will be April 20. We will celebrate in Lake Arrowhead Village with lots of fun activities for adults and children—an Easter egg hunt, mountain-wide Sunrise Service and plenty of holiday sales. Shop the Village to buy stuffed animals and toys for kids as well as Easter wear for people of all ages. The annual Lake Arrowhead Village Easter Egg Hunt for kids 0-10 years of age will be held on Saturday, April 19 from noon until 4 p.m. this year. You and your kids will be able to take “selfies” with the Easter Bunny, enjoy magic tricks performed by J. Paul Moore, and watch balloon artist Mr. Twister, concoct works of balloon art.
- Boat tours are held daily on the Arrowhead Queen.
- There are plenty of fun things for kids to do at Lollipop Park. Enjoy rides, games and mini golf. There’s also a candy store and funhouse mirrors to keep the little ones entertained.
- If you don’t have a boat on the lake, there are still ways to enjoy the water. One is by taking skiing lessons at McKenzie Water Ski School. Visit the school to sign up for wakeboard or waterski lessons or for a boat ride.
- Mother’s Day will be May 20. Shop early in the Village for great gifts for the women in your life. You can also plan to bring Mom to the Village for Mother’s Day brunch, or just grab a quick, delicious bite in the Village. Celebrate Mom with a delightful brunch and mimosa or one of our other tasty specialty drinks at Belgian Waffle Works.
- Belgian Waffle has plenty of great-tasting options for breakfast, brunch or lunch—whether you want to celebrate or just want to take a break when you’re shopping.
- The Rim of the World Historical Society museum & gift shop will open Memorial Day.
- Save the Date—June 18 will feature the annual Antique & Wooden Boat Show.
