Canaanite festival update

Based on photographic evidence, the former spring festival of Ashtoreth and Adonis (one possible origin of the Christian Easter) has been moved to August, as least in Tel Aviv, where planning is underway for the seventh annual Love Parade.

"For the seventh year in a row, the palpable tension that exists on the streets of Tel Aviv is about to be washed away by an onslaught of good vibes, techno beats and body paint, as the annual Love Parade comes to town" (Travel Channel).

Two Israeli photogs with long lenses have posted web albums of last year's celebration: Tommy's photos give you more of the parade floats and the crowds, while Verti goes more for female flesh close-up.
