Saturday night's event will be a special game night for adults, from 8 to 11 p.m.

Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights, officially began at sundown Wednesday. It marks the first time the holiday and Thanksgiving fell together since the 19th century.

The Town Center is located at 144 McHenry Road, Buffalo Grove. Adults and children under 2 enter for free, but children 2-16 must pay a $10 entrance fee, which covers most games and activities.
