Hanukkah begins this Sunday and goes for eight days. To kick off the holiday, the traditions and messages that come with it, the eighth annual Hanukkah at the State Capital is happening at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18.

Those who attend this year’s free event can expect:

  • Lighting of the giant 9-foot menorah
  • Chanukah laser light show
  • Chocolate gelt drop from the fire truck

People can also contact Chabad of Greater Baton Rouge, the event host, to get a free menorah and candles.
