The 2007 Susiada in the Galilee town of Afula, on Monday is a celebration of everything that has to do with horses. The first Susiada took place 40 years ago in Afula, by local horse breeders and farmers from the Jezreel Valley. The Susiada tradition was cut short 20 years ago, but now the Afula municipality has decided to restore the glory of Jezreel Valley horse breeders to its rightful place, and showcase the magnificent horses bred there today. Festivities include thoroughbred horse racing, a beauty contest of magnificent Arabian horses, and even a real rodeo. Visitors will have the opportunity to ride on ponies, as well as plenty of other fun activities for the whole family. Horse paraphernalia will be on sale, as well as plenty of vittles - everything for the entire family to have a blast. The 2007 Susiada will take place at the Hypodrome in Afula, Monday, October 1. Signs will be posted at all of the entrances to the city directing visitors to the site. The Hypodrome will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ticket prices are 50 NIS for adults and 10 NIS for children under 12. Tickets can be purchased at the Susiada on the day of the event. For more information, call 052-539-4774.
