Maryland's largest menorah was all lit up in Baltimore's McKeldin Square for the final night of Hanukkah on Wednesday.

A parade of cars with smaller menorahs on their roofs made its way from Park Heights to downtown, for the celebration of the Jewish holiday.

The event, which is put on by Chabad Lubavitch of Downtown Baltimore, drew about 450 people, organizers said.

One volunteer, Mendy Kaltmann, 17, a 12th grader at Lubavitch Yeshiva of Baltimore, said the event was "really captivating." He had only expected around 250 to attend.

"It shows the strength of the Jewish community here," he said.

The holiday ends at sundown on Thursday.
