Balloon menorahs, live music, hot latkes and celebrities will lead the 5th annual Bethesda Row Hanukkah show this year.
Katie Balloons, balloon artist and star TLC series The Unpoppables, will join Rabbi Sender Geisinsky of the Chabad of Bethesda-Chevy Chase to host ‘Chanukah Balloonarama’ at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on Bethesda Lane.
The event is free and open to the public and includes a balloon show with souvenirs for children, live music, hot latkes, chocolate coins and more, according to a press release.
According to Rabbi Geisineky, the balloon theme was chosen to reflect the uplifting story of Hanukkah, an event commemorating the victory of Jewish fighters, known as the Maccabees, over the great Syrian-Greek army.
This year, Hanukkah begins on the evening of Saturday, Dec. 8, and ends a week later on Sunday, Dec. 16. For more information on local commemorations check out our Hanukkah in Potomac post here.
