The parades are a staple of the Purim holiday season and are offered by local municipalities both as a fulfillment of the holiday's religious demand for joyous celebration and as an activity for children at home because of the one day Purim vacation.

Like every year, the central Adloyada parade is being held in the city of Holon, which prides itself on being "The Children's City", and some 5,000 people are expected to participate.

This Purim, the parade is being held under a Latin theme, but will still feature large impressive floats in the likeness of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin and even Iran's spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
