Sukkot Celebrated with Parade

Some 85,000 people from Israel and abroad took part in a Jerusalem parade here Wednesday, as over 250,000 people lined the capital’s streets to watch.

The event, which takes place every year during the Sukkot holiday, was this year hailed as a highlight of Jerusalem 3000, a year-long celebration of the founding of Jerusalem.

However, the parade drew none of the political controversy that surrounded the official opening of the Jerusalem 3000 events earlier this year, and a number of European countries contributed floats.
