  1. It is a wonderful thing that Dr. Roberts arranges and provides this carnival every year. I just want to say one thing, without having seating with graduated heights (bleachers) it is almost impossible for someone further back to see the shows, and I am talking as an adult, not a small child. Please Dr. Roberts consider different seating arrangements to make the shows more enjoyable. (I’m sorry, but, I couldn’t see a thing last chol hamoed)

  2. Thank you so much dr roberts! We were waiting for your post so we could finalize the rest of our chol hamoed bec theres no way we can miss your carnival! Its the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And we love the fact that you switched it to an indoor venue!

  3. Thank you Dr Roberts!!!!!! the spectacular biannual chol hamoed event is much enjoyed by family as well as many thousands. May the zchus of helping out so many families provide their children (and adults) with with such beautiful events, stand by you and may you have a year filled with huge hatzlacha beruchnius ubegashmius!

    Not to take away from the appreciation, I know you always want the feedback. I think that @my take has a point bleachers or something to that affect will help many enjoy the shows much much more.
