Tel Aviv is full of rainbows this week,  rainbow flags line the streets,  storefronts showing their rainbow displays and the general feeling that love is in the air! Gay pride is a big celebration with endless events and so much to do!

The Mayor of Tel Aviv- Yafo , Ron Huldai sums it up : “The Pride Parade has turned into one of the symbols of the City of Tel Aviv with hundreds of thousands of participants and tourists from all over the country and the world. I believe that Tel Aviv-Yafo, a city of tolerance, is a beacon to other cities in this issue”.

Here is the schedule:

10 am: Meir Park. There will be music, shows and speeches

12 pm: Parade Starts

The parade will march along Bugrashov Street, turning north on Yarkon Street, west on Frishman Street and eventually south along the city’s famous beach promenade towards Charles Clore Park. The parade will include the following floats: The Beef, Shirazi, Lizi, Zoti, Tel Aviv Sauna and Bshala.

Following the parade, a huge beach party will be held at Charles Clore Park till sunset.

Where should we eat?

You can start with the Eater 38 list of food experiences in Tel Aviv.  How should we fuel up before the parade?

Here are some options:

Breakfast at Anastasia. It’s hard not to fall head over heels in love with this gay-friendly vegan cafe. The food is incredible ( even if you are not vegan). The colorful breakfast and the fashionable vibe. Read more about it on the list (16)!

For a coffee on the way, stop at Dizengoff’s Cafe Nachat . 1 Raynes street

Inspired by the salons of the past that were used to gather and exchange ideas, this “Salon Cafe” and micro-roastery is the ultimate spot for some  artsy inspiration served alongside some homemade croissants or hearty paninis. Coffee connoisseurs will revel in the choices from espresso to French press to cold brew.

For some pre-pride wine,  check out the wine festival

Please follow my Facebook,  Keren Brown for live videos of the event!
