Photos: In Crown Heights, Purim Done Right

On Eastern Parkway, a festival of Megillah, mitzvot and masquerade.

Eastern Parkway was flooded with festivities Thursday as Chabad's home base filled with children and adults alike deliving mishloach manot (gifts of food), matanot l'evyonim (giving money to the poor) and masquerading as characters from the Megillah and modern day marvels.

Though the festival was particularly well attended on Brooklyn's major thoroughfare, the day was celebrated throughout the world, including in Syosset on Long Island, where MiYaD, Rabbi Chanan Krivisky led a Megillah reading for the five-year-old Jewish center.
