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.
This year, Chabad-Lubavitch will set up more than 15,000 large public menorahs in more than 90 countries around the world, including in front of landmarks such as the White House, the Eiffel Tower, and the Kremlin.
Chabad will present the ice Menorah and the candle lighting ceremony to spread the message of Chanukah and good cheer. Come join in the Chanukah spirit.
