South-Florida-logo

The South Florida community will join celebrations taking place around the globe to mark Lag B’Omer. The local Lag B’Omer Unity Parade & Fair is scheduled on Sunday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Gulfstream Park on the corner of US1 in Hallandale.

More than 100 Chabad Centers in South Florida are coming together to organize the spectacular free-of-charge event. Thousands of men, women and children from throughout South Florida are expected to attend the festival.

The day will begin with a parade at 10 a.m. at the SE corner of Hallendale Beach Blvd and US1. The march will feature colorful Jewish themed floats, music, bands and juggling clowns. After the parade, children can enjoy more then 50 free amusement park rides and many carnival games.

The fair will also feature a no charge concert starring the Israeli DJs and the popular Yossi Bales and his YBO Orchestra.

The celebration will offer a glatt kosher barbecue and traditional bonfire.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe initiated the tradition of Lag B’Omer parades, especially for children. Today, 69 years after the first one in 1944, Lag B’Omer parades are a tradition in Jewish communities around the world.

This year is the third time the parade and fair is being held at Gulfstream. Organizers will make sure that plenty of shade is provided to guarantee a day of tremendous celebration and comfort.

    here's a message for the alan friedlanders, avi goldsteins, and others of their ilk: if they want to sprout their form of hatred they should watch out for logic potholes. in this instance their claim that allowing gay folks to march in the parade is contra-hallachic is shot down by their not objecting to the inclusion of jews who eat tref, do not observe the sabbath, etc. – i.e., non-orthodox jews – as jonathan bronfman brings out clearly in his article.
