CITY OF TAMPA MENORAH LIGHTING
CHANUKAH IN THE CITY ON SUNDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2022
Please join the City of Tampa, Chabad CHAI South Tampa and Chabad of Tampa Bay for Tampa’s largest Chanukah Festival as we light up the night in Downtown Tampa with Chanukah in the City.
Chanukah in the City will be held Sunday, December 18, 2022 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at City Hall Plaza (315 E. Kennedy Blvd). The Menorah lighting will take place roughly at sunset.
It will be fun for the whole family, featuring hot latkes, doughnuts, Gelt drop by Tampa Fire Rescue, hot popcorn & cotton candy, fresh falafel by Pilpel, raffle prizes, rock wall, obstacle course, face painting, DJ Ron, human whack-a-mole, Johnny’s Photo Booth, balloon artist, stilt walker and performance by master illusionist Razzmatazz.
"This year’s Menorah lighting will be very special and is Tampa’s largest Chanukah Festival,” said Rabbi Mendy Dubrowski with Chabad CHAI South Tampa. “Chanukah reminds us of the power light has to dispel darkness and the candle within each of us that we must use to illuminate the world.”
The Honorable Joseph Citro, City Council Chairman, will take part in the Menorah Lighting on behalf of the City of Tampa.
“We thank the Chabad CHAI South Tampa and Chabad of Tampa Bay for making this event possible for families across our community,” Council Chairman Citro said. “It is a wonderful way for the families of Tampa to celebrate the Festival of Lights together.”
Chanukah in the City is free of charge and there is no RSVP required. This event is generously sponsored by The Bank of Tampa and others.
