Meitar's Scout troop put on a Purim carnival today.
This activity pictured above, Aladdin--the flying carpet, was popular.
The boy in white shorts was just being dumped onto the mat after his back and forth ride.
All the wooden framework was built by the Scouts.
There was music and dancing and activity booths all around the basketball court.
I think the Little Mermaid was for face painting.
The kids were well guarded. Even the bearded guy had an impressive rifle.
The other event in Meitar today was Chabad's Seudat Purim, the traditional happy meal in the afternoon.
I missed that, but hopefully I'll attend next year.
Tomorrow is Shushan Purim, when cities that were circled by a wall in ancient days celebrate the holiday.
