The spirit of Hanukkah glowed at a community menorah-lighting ceremony sponsored by Chabad of Fairfield downtown Sunday afternoon.

The menorah lighting, led by Rabbi Shlame Landa, was the culmination of various activities at a Hanukkah Holiday Village set up on Sherman Green, offering visitors traditional foods, a prize wheel, crafts, face painting, candle making and more.

In all, a bright start to the Festival of Lights.
