Traditionally, Lag B'omer is celebrated by outings to parks and fields, and by iginting a bon fire in memory of the great sage Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. In the 1950s the Lubavitcher Rebbe instituted the custom of celebrating Lag B'omer with a parade as a way for children to participate in a public display of Jewish pride. In this spirit Bais Menachem sponsors an annual Lag B'Omer parade in which Jewish children (and adults) can participate by marching alongside mitzva displays, and holding signs promoting Jewish customs and values.
