The annual Purim Parade in Holon – the Adloyada – this year celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Holon Children’s Museum with the theme “And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

This year some 4000 participants from Holon and all over the country will march, tootle and drum, dance, man the traditional floats, perform and generally celebrate the spirit of Purim and brotherly love. This year the floats include the aliens in their spaceship; the Kingdome of Time with a giant cuckoo clock; the Enchanted Forest on a nine-meter long flatbed’ the Catowl (Yanshul) – a marvelous critter made of 10,000 flowers; the White magician coming from his Snow Mountain; and much much more.

There will be shows before the actual parade, which starts at noon and goes the length of Sokolov Street and to the Weizmann/ Golomb corner. There will be a quiz on the museum with prizes for the winners, snappeling, acrobatics. The whole extravaganza will start with the song “Together,”and the onlookers will be asked to join hands as they sing along.

During its first 10 years, the Holon Children’s Museum has hosted some 1.5 million visitors from here and abroad.

The Purim Adloyada take place on March 20. The floats will be on display after the parade at the Mediatheque Plaza from 3-6 p.m. and on March 21 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Now all we need is sunny skies.
