Mayor Helene Schneider will help light the Giant Menorah and will serve as the judge for the contest. The Chanukah festival will take place on Sunday, Dec 9, at 5:00 P.M, at La Cumbre Plaza near Macys.
Participants will be able to have their photo, taken at the event, placed on the Giant Menorah and participate in a Paint Jam collaborative art activity. To celebrate the festival of lights there will be the kindling of a Menorah, a taste of Chanukah delicacies, live music and an olive press demo. “We want people to realize that the good they do, sheds light in their homes, our community and really out to the whole world.”
While music plays Chanukah favorites, Latkas, donuts and other Chanukah treats will be served. “It’s all about creating and event that will be exciting for the whole family,” says Rabbi Yosef Loschak, director of Chabad. “The message of Chanukah; the triumph of light over darkness, is a universal one and one that we enjoy sharing with the entire community.”
The event is sponsored by the Cooper and Keating Families together with Just 4 Fun rentals and Rincon Events.
