MUR — Just in time for the holidays!
From Thursday, Nov. 10 through Fri., Dec. 23, the world’s largest dreidel will be on display at Allaire Community Farm, a non-profit animal rescue organization that supports children with special needs, at-risk teens with mental health issues and veterans living with PTSD.
The dreidel, which stands 30 feet tall, will be added to the farm’s Christmas Light Spectacular. This is the largest known exhibition of its kind and will be eligible for a world record.
So far, a 25-foot-tall dreidel in Florida is believed to be the tallest in the world.
“The dreidel was designed by an outside company and built on site by farm supporters. It is made of high quality steel and mesh banners with a motor to spin the dreidel,” said Jo Ann Burney, co-founder and executive director of the farm.
This year is also the 2nd Christmas Light Show, the largest fundraiser for the Allaire Community Farm. The product helps keep the farm and its programs running during the winter months.
Last year, more than 11,000 people passed through the farm to experience the million lights celebrating the holiday season, Burney said.
This year, the tractor-drawn holiday wagon will once again take people on a festive 15-minute ride to see the twinkling lights around the farm. Bring a suitable blanket or rain gear. The holiday trailers can accommodate up to 25 people.
Christmas plants, baked goods, hot chocolate, hot cider, and more will be available for purchase in the market.
A train and a holiday village will also be installed on the market.
Tickets are $17 per person and must be purchased in advance from the farm’s website.
