Other activities include a candle lighting ceremony at 3:30pm; a glitter tattoo parlor with Glitter Tattoo New York; balloon art by Todd Neufeld’s Twisted Balloon Company; an arts and crafts workshop; a photo booth; and latke bites, jelly donuts, and mocktails.
The party will benefit The Jewish Museum’s educational programs and exhibitions.

DJ Alden is not your typical 9-year-old, having been around the DJ booth his entire life. He comes from a musical family with strong ties to New York nightlife, and had his first birthday party at the legendary Cielo Nightclub. DJing piqued his interest very early on and he began studying the craft at age 6. Always driven and with an insatiable appetite to “use music to make people happy,” Alden has been bringing his youthful perspective on electronic dance music to parties, fashion shows, and corporate events for the past 2 years. Currently he is the Resident DJ for CirKiz, A Cool Kid’s Dance Party, which has raised the bar on family entertainment in New York. He has also recently DJ’d for The John Lennon Imagine Peace Event in Central Park, petitePARADE fashion show, and the ED by Ellen launch for the Gap.
