Clifford Community members braved windy conditions to light up the first night of Chanukah 5778 - 2017 at Surf Style on Clearwater Beach, sponsored by Chabad of Clearwater.

Dr. Erel Laufer kindled the “World’s First Ever Giant Falafel Menorah,” the Clearwater Fire Department dropped hundreds of chocolate gelt from their ladder truck, Carl Rutenberg entertained on the guitar and Mad Science enthralled the kids. Not to mention, the hundreds of latkes, doughnuts and falafel participants polished off.

Clearwater Mayor George Cretekos was on hand too to greet the partygoers.
