The Chanukah Fire Truck Parade made its fourth stop in Kentlands Market Square on Monday, Dec. 23, bringing live music and singing, fire jugglers and the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department fire truck decorated with a four-foot menorah. This local Chanukah tradition has been organized each year since 2003 by Chabad Lubavitch of Upper Montgomery County. After departing from the Rockville Fire Station on Hungerford Drive, the parade made stops in Falls Grove, Potomac Woods, Washingtonian Woods and Kentlands Market Square. Each stop featured a 10-minute show. The parade concluded at Chanukah Wonderland, located at the new Simcha Educational Center on Dufief Mill Road, where the six-foot community menorah was lit and there was more entertainment, followed by a party.
