PHOTOS & VIDEO: Over 600 Enjoy Concert and Shows at Misameach’s Annual Mid-Winter Event

VIDEO & PHOTOS: Over six hundred men, women and children of the Misameach family enjoyed an action-packed mid-Winter event today.

The event at Lake Terrace hall kicked off with dinner at 4:30 PM, after the which the children and families enjoyed games, booths, inflatable rides, nosh and more.

One spectacular activity, was watching a remote-controlled car be driven around a 150 foot man-made roller coaster which spanned from one side of the hall to the other. The coaster was designed by Meir Kolko of the Tri-State Prop Shop, and took about two weeks and 20 volunteers to construct.

Before sitting down to watch the shows, Congressman Chris Smith and Mayor Albert Akerman presented a plaque to the founder of Misameach, Lipa Schwartz, for his dedication and efforts in bringing smiles to thousands of patients and their families throughout the year.

Following the presentation by the Congressman, who was brought in by the NJCA, the kids were in for their first of 2 exciting planned events. A K-9 show.

Two officers from the Transit Police K-9 Units, gave a 20 minute demonstration of the world of the K-9, including a live presentation of a the dog officer detecting a special towel, which it wouldn’t leave go of. (See video of officer spinning around the dog in the air). The K-9 show was also arranged by the NJCA.

Following the K-9 show, the attendees enjoyed an exciting show by the Chicago Boyz acrobats, and a live concert by renowned singers Dovid Gabay and Benny Friedman.

The event lasted about five hours.
