St. Louis region to get lit up for Hanukkah

When it comes to celebrating Hanukkah, Chabad in the St. Louis area likes to go big, as in really big.

Among noteworthy events, there will be a menorah lighting near the Arch and on Historic Main Street in St. Charles, just a stone’s throw away from the Missouri River. In Chesterfield, 100 cars, crowned with menorahs, will dot the streets as they parade through Chesterfield Central Park. A public lighting will also take place at the Market in the Loop in University City.
