Jerusalem’s Old City lights up every June with a spectacular exhibition of light. The Festival of Light, now in its seventh year, is now underway and expects 250,000 people to take part in the illuminating night-time event.

This year’s lineup includes 10 international artists displaying jaw-dropping artistic light sculptures and installations.

The Old City walls serve as one of the world’s most unique palettes for the dramatic light art during the event. The local happening is a partner of light festivals the world over.

There will also be light statues, illumination of architecture and interactive music and video presentations.
