Rochester, N.Y.- City Hall is decking the halls.
On Friday, Rochester’s mayor, Tom Richards continued the holiday tradition of the annual tree lighting ceremony.
He flipped the switch to light the 26-foot blue spruce tree in the City Hall atrium.
The School of the Arts Choir and students from School Number Four performed a number of holiday songs at the ceremony.
This year, City Hall added a menorah to the holiday display to celebrate Hanukkah.
“This particular 9 foot tall menorah has lights on it that will automatically light each night to represent each of the eight days of the festival. We hope you enjoy it as part of our holiday celebration,” said Richards.
Mayor Richards will join Rabbi Yitzi Hein at 8 p.m. Saturday at City Hall to light the menorah.
This is the first year that City Hall is displaying a menorah.
The menorah was provided by Chabad of Rochester.
