The annual Jerusalem Light Festival will take place June 26 - July 4 in the Old City. Now entering its 11th year, the festival features installations of lights at historic courtyards in the neighborhood.

Local musicians will also be strategically places along the routes to accentuate the light installations. The walls of the Old City will be light up with special intricate designs at various locations.
