3rd annual Chanukah Celebration | Community Spirit
Lakeland, FL - It's that special time of year again: Chanukah, the eight-day festival of light, celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, of spirituality over materiality.
Chabad Jewish Center invites members of the Polk County community to participate in the third annual public Menorah lighting in downtown Lakeland.
The fun starts Sunday, December 9 at 4 p.m. at Lake Mirror Ampitheatre, which is located at 121 S. Lake Ave, Lakeland, FL 33801.
Attendees will enjoy lively Chanukah music, chocolate Chanukah Gelt (coins), an exciting new Chanukah shop, an amazing fire show, and activities such as face painting, balloon twisting, guess the Dreidels game, arts & crafts and a raffle.
Hot dogs, potato latkes, sufganiyot (Israeli-style jelly donuts), and beverages will be available for sale.
At 5:30 p.m. the giant 9-foot Menorah will be kindled, overlooking beautiful Lake Mirror, followed by a few words from honored guests, Lakeland Mayor Gow Fields and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
This is a community-wide public event and admission is free.
