Photo of the Week – Israel dresses up

Kings, queens, devils, nuns, clowns, camels, cartoon characters – you can never quite be sure who you’ll meet on the streets of Israel at Purim.

Photo By Flash 90

This week’s photograph was taken by Dima Vazinovichi, from Flash90, at a street party in Tel Aviv.

It used to be a one day affair, but Purim is quickly growing into a several-day extravaganza of dressing up.

Whatever your age in Israel, the holiday is about having fun and adults are just as likely to spend weeks choosing the perfect costume as the kids are.
