Menorah and Car Parade Set for Dec. 20

Dust off the car menorah.

It's almost time for the  Baltimore Chanukah Parade. On Dec. 20, the first night of Chanukah, about 70 motorists are expected to affix menorahs atop their vehicles and head south on I-83, parade-style, to the menorah lighting downtown.

Want to participate, but don't have the right menorah? You can borrow one, for a $50 deposit. Details are on the parade registration form. You must have the menorah on your car for the entire Chanukah, the form states.

The deadline to register to participate is Dec. 13.

The parade leaves at 6:15 p.m. from Bnos Yisroel, 6300 Park Heights Ave., and the menorah lighting ceremony takes place at 7:30 p.m. at McKeldin Square by the Inner Harbor.
