So it may not be ideal to have rain on Pesach but there are still plenty of activities to do.

Look back at this post to find out updates about events & festivals. They will be posted here. 

  • Snappling on the Old City Walls & Tours – Tours will be adjusted to continue during rain and snappling will take place as long as there is no heavy rain. Snappling is amazing!!!
  • Ein Yael Festival – open
  • Moshav County Fair – open
  • Kif Tzuba Amusement Park – The park is open and when it rains only the indoor areas are open.
