Jaffa Street is looking like a race track, there are loads of police and security, mainly trying to make sure people don’t walk across the road.
This parade is a big event that happens each year and is lots of fun. Its not political although there are soldiers there, and the police, various Christian organisations.
Vintage buses and trucks, some are very old, probably date around 1948.
Left. Gasp! The new electric lightrail train is here! Apparently its not supposed to be running yet, just a brief glimpse of it was operating today only. The electric overhead wires were powered on a couple of weeks ago, but some of the infrastructure is not finished, there are some computer screens on the bus stops are not installed yet. Right. Police dog handlers. The canines seem to be an unusual indeterminate breed, they are shorter and stockier than typical German Shepherds normally use for police and military uses.
El-Al, Israel’s national airline, had their pilots and stewards out doing their own dance.

Disabled Israelis also here. There were loads more people attending, but I had to get back to work. 🙂
charabancs, that’s what those old-style buses used to be called! Bet you’ve never heard of that word! It’s an oldie but goody.
Thanks Daphne! Its certainly a surprise to see vintage vehicles in such good condition here. I see quite a lot of old cars but usually in a very bad state.
