The Samuel Field Y will host its annual Chanukah festival on Dec. 2 during which attendees will be able to eat, take part in games and listen to a professional storyteller.
The event is free, but the Y is asking that visitors bring nonperishable food items that can be handed out to local residents in need this holiday season.
“We try to feed our community members who can’t transport themselves to food markets or have the means to purchase groceries,” said Jared Mintz, a spokesman for the Y.
The festival will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Y, which is located at 58-20 Little Neck Parkway.
This year’s theme is “Let is Shine” and several of the activities at the event will include lights.
Performances at the festival will include storyteller LuAnne Adams as well as groups of the Y’s early childhood students and seniors.
Other activities include gym games, arts and crafts, giveaways and open houses for the Y’s camps and early childhood programs.
“It’s a day for families in the community,” Mintz said.
