What: Looking for an alternative holiday season event this year? Drop by the Jewish Community Centre and check out their first-ever Chanukah Market. Welcoming all, this family-friendly event––outdoors in large heated tents––features a sparkling array of 20 arts and crafts vendors, lots of live entertainment and a fun-tastic array of activities from bouncy inflatables to hands-on art. Food is also a big feature, with trucks and vendors serving-up everything from latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiot (jelly donuts) to Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine. And if you’re shopping for unique gifts, you’ll find jewellery, ceramics, glasswork and more. The finale? The day’s festivities culminate with the lighting of the first candle on the menorah at sundown.
