Today is the "Purim" holyday in Israel, and traditionally celebrated with everybody (well, almost everyone...) dress with a costume and masks.
Im my hometown, as in every year, depened on weather - the is a street carnival, on the main avenue, not matching to Rio's - but lots of happy faces, noise and crowd, kids alomg with parents, and you meet some carachters.
See the 2 WS's attached.

Very nice and lovely image, we see several children who no doubt would enjoy that more, with colorful and attractive of these big bears, a very happy and alive, where the rich colors makes it even more pleasing to the eye. Beautiful and fun images also in the WS
Have a great evening.

Be very careful my friend Ike, when you attend to such a festive parade, a serial killer can disguise himself as a cute character!!
Colourful carnival mood, anyway, depicted with great clarity!

The happy mood and sheer enjoyment just oozes from your photograph. How reassuring that ordinary people can still have such relaxed times despite the harsh, economic climate. We do still have such a lot to be happy about!
It is bright, it is colourful and despite your worries, the weather seems to have been very amenable!
I'm sure the children would have loved those giant animals!
Have a lovely w/e,

A verfy vivid shot with vibrant colours. I really like your composition with all the people in the foreground that lead in to the giant animals. Very good timing with the child putting his hand on the monkey. TFS and have a nice weekend!

The party, or period of "Purim" as one of the "huts" have a biblical meaning of salvation.
Joy and color for the salvation obtained.
