Celebration of Light in Nevada City

A festive atmosphere and positive thoughts about building community in Nevada City as part of the Chanukah celebrations. The third annual public menorah lighting and celebration took place in Robinson Plaza Thursday evening. Part of the festivities included lighting a nine foot tall menorah and some fun lighthearted performances. City Council member Duane Strawser has attended the Menorah Lighting in the past says the event put on by the Chabad of Grass Valley is a mix of fun and seriousness, and is meant to bring people together.
