The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality is holding a series of events over the Passover vacation that are perfect for families. Among the events are street fairs, story hours and children’s plays. Admission to all of the events is free.

On April 12 and 13 (Wednesday and Thursday of this week), a spring festival will be held at Hatachana.

Children will also be able to get their face painted during the festival. On Wednesday, children will enjoy the Friend’s of Ortal Children’s Play and on Thursday, they will be able to see Sharoni Sofer Mother, another children’s play.

On the same dates, there will be a spring celebration in Old Jaffa from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Children’s plays, street performances, art workshops and an art exhibit will be the highlights of this celebration. The Jaffa Port will hold a celebration on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. The celebration will start at 10:00 AM and end at 4:00 PM daily. The activities that children will enjoy include story hours, creative corners and tons of surprises.

Also, be sure not to miss the street circus at Sarona on April 15 (Saturday), which will feature a circus street party suitable for the whole family.

After the Passover holiday is over and children return to school throughout Israel, the official start of beach season in Tel Aviv will be marked on April 27. Every year, over 8 million people visit the city’s white sandy beaches.

Each of Tel Aviv’s 13 beautiful beaches has its own distinct character. For example, Gordon Beach is known as a great spot for beach volleyball. The city’s Hilton Beach is popular hangout area for the LGBTQ community and attracts thrill-seekers who are looking to wind or kite surf. Geula Beach has a more relaxed, less crowded vibe. Religious communities often gather at Nordau Beach, which offers separate days for men’s and women’s swimming.
