This is the first adloyada that I've seen because there was none last year or the year before, as people felt it would be inappropriate to have such ostentatious public celebrations going on at a time when horrors were being suffered daily. It was particularly enjoyable this year because of the acknowledgement in the air that no, it's not all perfect yet, but things are a lot better than they've been. It's time to celebrate purim!
This year's parade was, I am told, "understated" as compared to previous parades. I was pretty impressed all the same. The streets were absolutely packed, everyone was out, most in costume.
The show lasted a little over an hour and it was really a treat.
uh oh, the parade has started without us!
Pooh HaDov. Heard of him?
Nice hair, dude. You look just like those miflatzot
These girls were really bopping along, doing a great dance,
the picture doesn't do them justice. The name of the security company
appears to be "J. R. Security."
Too bad they weren't around to save Dallas's hero.
those are empty water cooler bottles they've decorated and turned into drums
