The parade featured party trucks and DJs, ending at a huge party featuring performances by leading artists at Charles Clore Park.. Over 100,000 people celebrated at the first Tel Aviv Pride parade in two years on Friday, as Israel Police thwarted a number of attempted LGBTQ+-phobic attacks against the parade. While the parade usually draws crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands, it was slightly smaller this year due to a renewed outbreak of the coronavirus and restrictions preventing foreign tourists from entering the country. Despite being somewhat smaller, the parade was still the largest event to take place in Israel since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. About 50 people were arrested by the police during the parade due to attempts to disturb the parade. The police announced that they had arrested two residents of the Palestinian Authority who were in Israel illegally, next to the parade. The two were carrying a knife and we’re transferred to a police station for questioning.
