VAIL — Jewish Community Center Chabad Vail is hosting a grand Hanukkah celebration on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 5:30 p.m. at The Riverwalk at Edwards. There will be hot sizzling latkes, doughnuts, dreidel giveaways, gelt, children’s crafts and more fun for the whole family.
In addition to celebrating Hanukkah, Chabad Vail will honor and recognize the community’s fire department as they treat those in attendance with the Great Gelt Drop. It will “rain down” chocolate gelt as firemen drop the candy down from firetrucks.
This event is just one of the many Chabad Hanukkah celebrations that are being held throughout the Vail Valley.
The event is free. For more information, call 970-476-7887 or visit http://www.Jewish Vail.com.
