Mayor to light 15-foot-tall menorah tonight at Universal CityWalk
The 11th Annual Festival of Lights begins at 7 p.m. A number of local officials will be there, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who will light the menorah.
The celebration, at Universal CityWalk’s “5 Towers,” will include a free concert, kosher food and dancing. Jewish rock bands and the L.A. Cheder Boys Choir are scheduled to perform.
The event is one in a string of holiday celebrations. Upcoming events include fresh snow, nightly holiday readings and a “Grinchmas” event at Universal Studios Hollywood.
