Community Purim Carnival at JCC on March 24

The Jewish Community Center of Binghamton will host its annual Purim Carnival on Sunday, March 24, from 1-3:30 pm. The cost to attend is $5 per child and $1 per adult, with a $20 maximum per family. The entire community is welcome to attend. All proceeds will benefit the JCC Youth Department.
On Purim, children and adults dress up and celebrate by giving gifts and tzedakah (charity). Everyone, young and old, is encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Purim character or in any costume of their choice. The JCC Kids Connection staff, who run the event, said they love to create different themed costumes each year.
There will be a number of activities geared toward children, including carnival games, inflatable play areas, arts and crafts, and face painting. All games earn children points that can be traded in at the prize table. Traditional Purim food will be available for purchase during the event.
