The Chabad of Coral Springs has been crucial in the community this year, especially with their ongoing food distributions during the Covid-19 pandemic. As Chanukah approaches, they have planned ways to hold safe celebrations for all.
On Sunday, December 14, they will hold a “Glow in the Dark” Menorah parade, followed by a drive-in LED lights and robotics show that is sure to light up the city with Chanukah pride.
All cars with menorahs are welcomed to be included as part of the procession, and all other cars may follow behind.
The route they will take will start at the Chabad of Coral Springs, and they will drive south along University Drive, stopping at City Hall, and then continuing on University until turning right on Atlantic Blvd, traveling west until reaching the Chabad Jewish Center on the corner of Atlantic and Coral Ridge, where they will turn right and travel north again, to reach the Sportsplex.
Because there is limited parking on the route, they encourage onlookers to park in the free garage at City Hall, at the Chabad Jewish Center on 11325 W Atlantic Blvd, or at the Coral Springs Sportsplex, where the remainder of the event will take place.
All attendees must in their cars, ensuring a safe, socially distant way to celebrate while still gathering with neighbors and loved ones.
There will be Chanukah refreshments and surprises along the parade route, and the Chabad will also be putting together Chanukah packages and giveaways to attendees.
To ensure everyone can receive a Chanukah package, the Chabad is asking attendees to RSVP online.
The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. December 13, at the Chabad of Coral Springs, located at 3925 N University Drive, and the parade will depart from there at 6:15 p.m.
The route will pass City Hall, then the Chabad Jewish Center, and finally, at 7:00 p.m., the procession will arrive at the Sportsplex, located at 3299 Sportsplex Drive.
