I loved the· Chanukah Fair. There was cotton candy, lollipops,· soda, snacks and amazing booths. I am not sure what other people did but for my class we did a puppet show. I was the one giving out tickets if people were being good during the puppet show. I got cotton candy for one dollar. It was so,so, good. I wish next year it will be as good as this time. The puppet show was not so good because the music was way too loud. I wish it to be better next year. I hope you will love the Chanukah Fair, but you will!! Please give a good thank to Mrs. Garbar because it was all because of her and our 3rd grade.
