"Follow the Lights" event takes passengers around the city, with historical insights, laser shows and dinner deliveries!
After months at home, isolation and lock downs, you can now enjoy a brightly and colorfully illuminated Jerusalem in a safe way from the convenience of your car, while adhering to all public health measures.
Full details are here! If you ever needed an excuse to go to Jerusalem - here is a great one!!
The drive takes you to 22 iconic buildings and sites in Jerusalem, each lit up with imagery, video installations and lights, and accompanied by explanatory texts and history (in Arabic, Hebrew and English) on the event website.
Through the website, each passenger car can follow one of the routes or create their own, going from the Chords Bridge, Israel Museum and the Knesset to the First Station, Armon Hanatziv promenade and YMCA, as well as the Monster Slide, Khan Theater, High Court Bridge and other locations.
Light installations will include artworks and archaeological exhibits on the buildings of the Israel Museum (visible from the drive-in parking lot), a musical event at the First Station parking lot and a laser show along the Armon Hanatziv promenade.
You can even broadcast your own dedicated message in the lights of the String Bridge, and having an animated GIF image sent to a friend or loved one.
The event runs through March 3, and was put together by ITravelJerusalem, the municipality, the Ministry of Jerusalem and Heritage, the Tourism Ministry and the Jerusalem Development Authority.
You can even order meals via the event website, delivered to your car! Some deliveries such as the tasters from Machane Yehuda require booking in advance - so plan your drive!
