Temple Sinai, with a grant from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York, will host its annual fun-filled Community Purim Carnival for the public on Sunday, March 15th, from 2-4 p.m. in the Christopher Dailey Gym at Wilton’s Gavin Park.

Purim is a holiday celebrating a biblical story about overcoming racism and oppression. It is traditionally celebrated with costume and revelry, and has been called "the Jewish Mardi Gras.”  It’s the biggest party of the Jewish year. Families and children from the community are welcome to join this program for youngsters of all faiths.

Featuring more than 15 interactive games and 2 huge bounce attractions, children of all ages will also enjoy dancing with the DJ, a photo booth, face-painting, crafts, snacks, and prizes galore for everyone (every player wins EVERY time!)

The schedule of events in Gavin Park includes games, bounce attractions, children's crafts, and a photo booth from 2-4 p.m. and a community dance party with DJ (and loads of prizes) from 3:30-4 p.m.

Admission is free. Activity tickets are $1 each and wristbands for unlimited games and rides are $12. (All games are one ticket and all rides two tickets). Popcorn and cotton candy will be available for purchase.

"Purim is a joyous celebration, especially for children, with a wonderful story, noisemakers, costumes, and fun. What better way to celebrate than with a carnival? We hope children and families from throughout the Saratoga Springs-Capital District area will attend our annual Purim Carnival and become a part of the merriment!" said Temple Sinai President Michael Marx.

Temple Sinai is a Reform synagogue located in the historical district of downtown Saratoga Springs. For more information about the carnival, contact Temple Sinai at 518-584-8730
