All lights will be illuminated on an 18-foot menorah to celebrate the eighth night of Chanukah at Yellowstone Park this upcoming Sunday.

The “Chanukah on the Park” event, which is expected to have over 300 guests this year, will take place in Yellowstone Municipal Park, located at 68-01 Yellowstone Blvd., at 6 p.m on Dec. 9.

Candles will be lit at 6:30 p.m. by way of an FDNY cherry-picker, with music, dancing, and much more to follow.

A huge coin drop from 30 feet above ground will take place, with Chanukah clowns and dreidel mascots to meet and interact with guests. Glow-in-the-dark glasses and glow sticks will also be given out, and attendees can also take part in a grand raffle.

Food and beverages from JJ’s Holy Cow will be available, along with fresh jelly donuts.

The event is free but requires an online RSVP at

The event is sponsored by Chabad Forest Hills North and is also made possible by the NYC Parks and Recreation Department, FDNY, and the 112th Precinct.
