Join the fun – crazy Purim celebrations in Netanya Thursday 21 March 2019

Netanya celebrates Purim on 21 March – with a crazy “Adloyada” (literal English translation “until one doesn’t know”) based on the custom of being so happy (and often a little drunk) for the Jews being saved from death (by order of Haman) by Queen Esther, the Jewish wife of King Ahashverus, and Mordechai, her uncle.  No school, a family day, music, entertainment, kids and adults galore in fantastic innovative costumes, special exhibits, giant dolls, jugglers, clowns, 1,500 dancers from schools and dance groups – all in the spirit of an upside-down, confused and crazy world.

A street party for teenagers will take place on March 19 at the new Independence Square, which will turn between 12 – 4pm into a “paper square” with a variety of DJ’s and surprises.

On Thursday, March 21 from 12 – 3pm. down the length of Shalom Aleichem St. (from west to east – Ben Gurion Blvd. to Ben Zvi Blvd) with Yuval Hamebolbal (Crazy Yuval – entertainer).

Free shuttles back and forth will operate from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
* from Beit Feldman on Ben Gurion Blvd
* from the western parking lot of Netanya Stadium
* from the corner of Weizmann and Sokolov, near the public park
* from Neot Ganim Ovadia Park
* from Agamim neighborhood, 8 Agam Kinneret St., near the bus stop.

On Friday, March 22, a colourful ‘happening’ will take place in “Herzl Street mall” in the city centre (between Stampfer and Dizengoff) with dozens of street artists, stilt walkers , jugglers, live sculptures, drummers from Tremolo percussion center,  graffiti shows, dance groups, magic and children’s shows starring Livluvit, Nofiki, Nati and more.

The Irises are blooming

The Iris reserve is south of the city, close to the beach, and is one of only two places in Israel where you can still see the colorful bloom of rare and impressive flowers that grow in Israel. The irises bloom in February – March and attract visitors from around the country who come to see them in bloom. The area has mainly sandy paths and one can see not only the irises (which are deep purple in colour) but also occasional red Calaniot – the national flower of Israel.  Walking is allowed on the marked paths only.  Motor vehicles are prohibited in the reserves.  The reserve can be accessed from Ben Gurion Boulevard, or the pedestrian bridge near to the Winter Park.    This year, there are:

✔ More marked trails
✔ More explanatory signs
✔ More guided tours

Netanya Municipality works hard to preserve and enhance this reserve to ensure the survival of one of the rare flowers that grow in Israel.
