You know a city is truly awesome when there is someone in the city’s cultural committee who thought to himself­ “hey, let’s keep the city open all night long”. Tel Aviv’s White Night celebration is one of the biggest events of the year, with all night parties; and when the shop owners and restaurants literally don’t close. Stores that usually close at 10pm will be open till 6am and beer will be drunk and music will be heard in different public locations throughout the city. Even some museums and galleries stay open all night, so there are hundreds of things to do!

Although the best way to celebrate is at the massive street parties that happen in the major streets, there are some awesome productions you should check out! Scroll down to find out where are the best parties and events of Laila Lavan 2017.
