Jewish tradition teaches that no matter how dark it gets we must strive to bring light. No holiday celebrates this concept more brightly than Chanukah, which requires lighting one additional candle each night until we have filled the eight-branched menorah or chanukiah and brought light to the darkness.
Every year, Chanukah on Ice attracts a crowd of families for outdoor ice skating to Chanukah music, with stops for hot chocolate, sufganiyot (traditional jelly doughnuts), and the lighting of the largest menorah in Boulder County.
This year, the festivities are on the eighth night, Sunday December 29, beginning at 4:00 and the menorah is lit at 5:00.
No reservations are required and everyone is welcome!
Admission to WinterSkate is $10 for adults and $8 for people four to 12 and includes skate rental. Say you are there for the menorah lighting and get $1 off!
WinterSkate is located at 824 Front Street in downtown Louisville.
