Happy Birthday, Tel Aviv

tel-aviv

Early into the morning people were still partying in one of the largest celebrations Tel Aviv has ever seen. Over the weekend the city celebrated its 100th anniversary, even in the midst of war. In Yitzhak Rabin Square, thousands of people celebrated with concerts, dancing and the explosions of fireworks, instead of the blasts of bombs. Celebrations included a birthday bash on Friday, which kicked off the expected year-long festivities including concerts, art, tours, cultural events and many parties. The Tel Aviv marathon, which was retired for fifteen years, will be revved up again for the celebration with a run around the city and its historic landmarks. Events to commemorate Tel Aviv’s anniversary also took place in New York, Paris, Copenhagen and Vienna and will continue through this year.
