Happy Hanukkah!



hanukkah.jpgJewish families will light the first candle on their menorahs tomorrow and continue through eight crazy nights to commemorate Hanukkah, a centuries-old victory for religious freedom. On Wednesday, Straub Park in St. Petersburg will be lit up with a Chanukah Extravaganza, with live music, hot latkes and a giant menorah filled with donated toys. It’s free, but you are asked to donate a toy at 5:30 p.m. at Fifth Avenue NE and Bayshore Drive.

Over at the University of Tampa is Chanukah at Plant Park, 201 W Kennedy Blvd., from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday. There will be a giant menorah lighting, latkes, doughnuts and treats, plus a car menorah parade around UT and then to USF. On Dec. 7 there will be a Chanukah in the Park at Hyde Park Village from 6 to 8 p.m., a family and pet-friendly event with a kosher wine tasting, lots of treats, crafts and games.
