The Uptown Jewish Community Center will hold its 44th annual Adloyadah Community Wide Purim Carnival on Sunday afternoon.

For details, see the news release from the JCC:

The 44th annual Adloyadah Community Wide Purim Carnival will take place from 12:00 – 4:00 pm on the back field of the Uptown Jewish Community Center. In case of rain, it will move to the auditorium. The carnival will include food, rides, game booths, prizes, arts and crafts, music, a stilt walker, a juggler and much more. Children can come dressed for the costume parade.

Carnival-goers at this year’s festival will have the opportunity to participate in a Zumba class, watch a fencing demonstration, and learn to belly dance. The festival will feature Middle Eastern cuisine, New York-style deli items, healthy salads, snowballs, popcorn, and homemade Hamantaschen baked by the Young Women of Hadassah, using the traditional recipe of the New American Social Club.

The Jewish Community Center is once again partnering with Second Harvest for this year’s Adloyadah. An all-day ride and game pass for children is $12 or $10 with a donation of non-perishable food items for Second Harvest. Admission to the carnival is free and open to the community.

We invite everyone from the community to come out and enjoy the 44th annual Adloyadah Community Wide Purim Carnival. The event will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2013 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm on the back field of the Uptown JCC, 5342 St. Charles Avenue. Please contact rachel@nojcc.org for more information.
