Marco Island made it official Saturday evening. A crowd filled Veterans’ Community Park on a beautiful night, chowing down with friends and families at some football-style tailgate parties, took in some homegrown entertainment at the Christmas Island Style Tree Lighting Ceremony and then counted down as the switch was flipped on the tree.
As usual the event was attended by families from near and far. The menorah lighting marks the first day of Chanukuh and is accompanied by live music, a childrens' play and of course traditional Jewish foods- all enjoyed by the crowd.
