Purim carnival

Bring out your noisemakers, put on your craziest costume - it's Purim. Ring in the festive Jewish holiday at Howard County's annual Community Purim Carnival Sunday in Columbia. Purim marks the deliverance of the Persian Jews from oppression and is often celebrated with costume parties, food and charitable donations. The carnival features games, crafts, a moonbounce, raffles, kosher refreshments and more. The Jewish Federation of Howard County and six Jewish Sunday schools in the county sponsor the event.

The Purim carnival runs 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Sunday at Long Reach High School, 6101 Old Dobbin Road, Columbia. $3; free for children. Call 410-730-4976, Ext. 21.


We could all use a fairy godmother now and then. Especially Cinderella. Watch as her story unfolds in a classic production of "Cinderella," tomorrow at Harford Community College. The family musical is presented with all the story's pageantry and intrigue - the wicked stepmother, evil stepsisters, handsome prince and glass slipper. The show also features audience participation. The Harford Community College's Special Events Young Persons' Series presents the show with Sail Productions, a children's and family musical theater company.

"Cinderella" will be performed at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Amoss Center, Harford Community College, 401 Thomas Run Road, Bel Air. $6-$8. Call 410-836-4211 or TTY 410-836-4199.
