Purim Festival and Bone Marrow Drive in Silver Spring on March 20

Come to the Ohev Sholom Purim Festival and Parade in downtown Silver Spring on Sunday, March 20 from 12 - 3 PM.  In addition to fun and games for kids, there will be a Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation Drive to help 15-month-old, Ayelet Galena, who was recently diagnosed with a rare blood disorder and is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Registering as a potential bone marrow donor is as easy as a simple cheek swab!

The parade, featuring Mordechai's Royal Horses, starts at 908 Ellsworth Drive between Fenton Street and Georgia Avenue. There will be a moon bounce, inflatable obstacle course, magic show (starting at 2:15pm), pony rides, delicious hamentaschen (the traditional treat shown in the photo), carnival games and prizes, face painting, eco-arts and crafts, a live DJ, raffle, and more!

The festival is open and free to all.
