Kings Bay Y, you’ve done it again.

The Sheepshead Bay Jewish Center threw its annual Chanukah extravaganza on Dec. 9, where the area’s residents brought in the second night of the festival of lights in high spirits.

The seventh annual festival featured a blow-up slide, pizza, a dreidel-decorating station, and of course, a giant menorah, which was lit with candles.

“Presents, lighting the menorah, and celebrating with my family,” was the favorite part of Chanukah to young attendee Sabina Kapkayeva, according to News 12.

The holiday celebration, which commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, is one of the most popular at the community center.

Patrons left looking forward to six more nights of the eight-night festival.
