The Kings Bay Y celebrated the Festival of Lights early this year with its Hanukkah Extravaganza on Nov. 24, where the community center treated kids to games, crafts, snacks — and a Mickey mitzvah.

“It was a wonderful treat for the kids,” said Marine Park mom Abigail Fastag, who brought her 4-year-old daughter Eliyah to the Y.

Like any good kids event, the Kings Bay Y set up the necessary bouncy houses and inflatable slides for the kids to play on — when they weren’t drinking soda and eating pizza.

There were also art supplies for the kids to craft their ideal paper dreidels and menorahs.

If that wasn’t enough, Mickey Mouse even showed up to play with the kids and pose for pictures.
