All vehicles participating in the parade must arrive at its starting location by 2:30 p.m. Those interested in mounting a menorah to their vehicle are encouraged to arrive at 2 p.m., when distribution begins on a first-come, first-served basis.

Cars that arrive later than those times are still invited to participate, but menorahs will not be guaranteed.
