Young elementary

$12 in advance; $15 at the door; free parents and children younger than age 3

Event description: Don't look for a traditional Purim carnival at Westchester Reform Temple this year. Instead, the Scarsdale-based temple will present an "Adar-nival." WRT's new twist on the spring festival pairs the community-wide carnival with a celebration of the Jewish calendar's month of Adar (the month in which we traditionally celebrate Purim). Thus, the new nomenclature "Adar-nival."

Just as in a traditional Purim carnival, "Adar-nival" participants are encouraged to dress in costume as a favorite hero, villain, queen, princess, or in any other Purim-themed outfit. New and updated carnival activities, including electronic games, will delight children of all ages and be accessible to all. Parents and children under 3 are free.
