Car Menorah Parade to Celebrate 2020 Hanukkah Season, Chabad of S. Petersburg’s Unique Way of Safely Celebrating the Holiday
St. Petersburg, FL — Amid the ongoing pandemic, Chabad of S. Petersburg recognizes the crucial importance of bringing Hanukkah’s message of light and hope to St. Petersburg’s Jewish community amid a dark winter. To safely do so, Chabad of S. Petersburg will be having a Car Menorah Parade departing from Sunken Gardens traveling to North Straub Park, and culminating in a Hanukkah festival featuring a Menorah lighting, music, entertainment, and prepacked Hanukkah goodies.
“While typically, we’re able to invite St. Petersburg’s community to join our Hanukkah menorah-lighting ceremony at North Straub Park, this year we are inviting them to participate in their cars safely bringing Hanukkah to those otherwise unable to attend due to coronavirus,” said Alter Korf, Rabbi of Chabad of S. Petersburg. “The Car Menorah Parade is a perfect way for St. Petersburg’s Jewish community to show out Jewish pride and celebrate Hanukkah during the pandemic.”
The parade route will travel via the main thoroughfares of St. Petersburg, including Central Ave, Beach Drive, and Bayshore Drive, in a unique Hanukkah celebration promoting holiday awareness and bringing a message of light and hope to St. Petersburg. The parade will end at North Straub Park for the lighting of a giant Menorah, and other Hanukkah festivities and entertainment.
