Star Wars the Purim Party

Purim is normally a time for tradition, but this year Chabad of NW Metro Denver is bucking the trend and doing perhaps the most non-traditional Purim event ever, with its Star Wars themed Purim party.

Make no mistake, all the regular Purim customs will be practiced. From the megillah reading with the banging at the mention of Haman’s name, to the spectacular feast with Hamantashen and a cash bar.

However that’s where tradition ends and the 21st century Purim party begins.

Star Wars the Purim Party, entertainment will include laser tag and Star Wars games, a fancy dress runway, light sabre activities, and a photo studio offering families the opportunity to capture this amazing Purim party in their fancy dress costumes. Come in Star Wars theme costume or costume of choice.
