It’s a day of joy, color, words, family and friends. It’s Purim and it’s one of the most fun days on the Jewish calendar. It’s the commemoration of the saving of the Jewish people in Persia from a plot to destroy them. The story is recounted in the Megillah (also known as the book of Esther) which is read on Purim. Then it’s time for a Purim carnival as those in attendance often wear costumes, masks and colorful hats and wigs. It’s a happy affair with noisemakers, games for people of all ages and a call to give to others. If you’re in charge of planning a Purim carnival, you want to be able to create an event that brings out the significance of the day, while making sure it brings the fun and joyous celebration the day calls for. NY Party Works can help. Our products and services can help everyone find meaning and have an enjoyable time. Here’s how:
Planning Events Big and Small
Purim events can be small or huge. The Five Towns Jewish Times outlined an example of a large event in which 3,000 people in the Five Towns section of Long Island, which includes Lawrence, Cedarhurst, Woodmere, Inwood and the Hewlett area attended Megillah readings which were scheduled hourly. Then they were treated to Purim night entertainment which included magic and juggling. The event was packed to capacity.
If you’re looking for a similar type atmosphere, NY Party Works can help. We can provide your carnival with circus performers, including jugglers. We also have magicians who can work a room or perform on stage or caricaturist’s.
