To celebrate the 2016 Chanukah season, Chabad will be having a Car Menorah Parade on Thursday, departing at 5:30 p.m. from 950 Vine Street traveling to the Chattanooga ChooChoo and culminating in a lighting ceremony on the ice of a giant ice Menorah at Ice on the Landing.

The parade route will travel via MccCallie Avenue and Market Street, in a unique Chanukah celebration promoting holiday awareness.

Today, the unprecedented public display of Hanukkah has become a staple of Jewish cultural and religious life, forever altering the American practice and awareness of the festival.
