HOUSTON, TX -  Chanukah, oh Chanukah, it's time to light the menorah! For the twentieth year in a row, Houston's City Hall hosted a large Chanukah menorah lighting.

The Jewish "Festival of Lights" lasts for eight days, and with Sunday being the first night, community members lit up the large candelabra on the steps of City Hall.

"In the time of the temple, they found oil," Laykie Donin said. "The miracle of the oil was that it lasted for eight days. This is the festival of light, let's bring more light into the world."

Chanukah Fest 2015 had free admission and ended with a fireworks display.
