Festivities will be held from 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. with three great inflatable rides:  Ultimate Challenge Obstacle, Octagon Extreme  and Crayon Play Land  Combo for $5 for unlimited rides.   

A barbecue with family prices will feature hot dogs, hamburgers, salads and dessert and will begin at 5:00 p.m.  Lag B’omer commemorates the anniversary of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai’s death.  The Rashbi, as he was known, asked that the anniversary of his death be commemorated by fun outdoor celebrations.
