EVANS, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- A celebration of Hannukah is coming to Evans.

A grand Menorah Lighting Ceremony will happen at Evans Towne Center Park on Dec. 22nd.

The 9-foot Nathan Katz Menorah will be lit following the singing of traditional songs, greetings, a children's performance, and more. Gifts will be given out to all the children in attendance.

Hannukah, the Festival of Lights, recalls the victory more than 2,100 years ago of a militarily weak but spiritually strong Jewish people who defeated a ruthless enemy that had overrun ancient Israel and sought to impose restrictions on the Jewish way of life, prohibit religious freedom and force the Jewish people to accept a foreign religion.
