It’s more costume madness! Purim celebrations hosted by various community organizations continue throughout the week, but the Shorefront YM-YWHA (3300 Coney Island Avenue) helped kick it all off with a Purim party on Sunday.
Hundreds came out to the event, donning costumes and noshing away at scrumptious hamentaschen. They took to the rock climbing wall, the inflatable rides and the arts and crafts table, with a judged costume contest wedged in there as well.
Shorefront Y said they were proud to host the event, and happy so many people in the community participated.
“Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Purim Carnival, it was a real blast!” said Anna Bronfman, program director at Shorefront. “Purim is a wonderful holiday and we are happy to celebrate it together with our family of community members.”
