Hundreds of residents came out Sunday night to celebrate the first night of Chanukah.
One would think that an ice Menorah is creative enough. But at Sunday's Chanukah celebrations the Menorah was made up of white and blue balloons. And it streched almost all the way to the roof of the stage in the Downtown Plaza.
A ladder was needed to light up the first candle all in an effort to celebrate its universal message. The Menorah lighting kicks off the celebration to the eight day Chanukah holiday. Also known as the festival of lights the Menorah symbolizes religious freedom. For more on this story please see video:
