Starting with an Extravaganza like no other, the “Unzerer Anash Kinder” of Los Angeles joined together for the debut of world-famous ventriloquist Chuck Field, who had the children literally laughing and rolling on the floor!
The extravagant evening also included Purim Parrot Tricks and a costume contest where every child had his or her chance to parade down the red carpet in front of the three judges and show off originality!
A variety of different costumes were displayed, from Lego Mentchies, to Rachel Imeinu, to “Things”, pirates, cupcakes, bakers, chefs, Queen Esthers, Yossie and Label, Mordechai’s, washing machines and more. And everyone was a winner, with three special costumes mentioned for “Creativity”, “Toichen” and “Talent/Confidence”!!
Of course the evening ended with a Children’s Rally – the 12 pesukim, tzedaka and booming loud Niggunim “Vayehi Bimey Achashveirosh!!”
The next morning a KYY convertible was seen driving around town, Jewish music blasting, clowns and streamers blowing in the wind as special KYY Honorable Mentions took turns getting a ride and delivering Mishloach Manos. The car added so much simcha to the streets, getting passerby to jump up and start dancing!
And even more….a Jewish horse and buggy, the “Mordechai Mobile” which took LA by storm as the horses paraded through the streets prancing “THUS SHALL BE DONE TO THE MAN WHOM THE KING WISHES TO HONOR!”
Rides for the children, Mishloach Manos deliveries and Matanos Le’evyonim hand outs created the perfect Purim joyous atmosphere.
