The Jewish Festival of Lights is going big in Detroit for the eighth annual Menorah in the D.

Each year on the first day of Chanukah, a 26-foot one-of-a-kind steel and glass Menorah appears in Campus Martius surrounded by a family-friendly celebration that includes everything from dancing dreidels to marshmallow roasting.

The free event hosted by The Shul of West Bloomfield kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and will offer live entertainment, face painting, balloon sculpting, Kosher food truck, a Mitzvah station, horse-drawn carriage rides, a Chanukah Gelt for children, and more. The one-of-a-kind steel and glass Menorah will be lit at 5 p.m.
