TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local Jewish outreach organization is hosting Chanukah at the Reid Park Zoo today from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Organizers with Chabad Tucson say it's an opportunity for the community to learn about Chanukah and Jewish traditions.

Those who attend can expect to see organizers light a giant menorah. They can also expect to light their own menorahs, view the light displays and sculptures, enjoy food, music along with arts and crafts for the kids. 

This is Chabad Tucson's 30th public menorah lighting, but its first one at the zoo.

Reid Park Zoo is located in Midtown on 22nd Street near Randolph Way.

Tickets are $15 for adults and will be available at the door. Kids two-years-old and younger are free.
