The festival includes live performances (such as the band on the roof in the picture above), free entrance to the museums and galleries in the area, craft and antique fairs, and what would it be without food?
Traditional Middle Eastern sweets, such as knafe and malabi, can be bought at the festival. These boys are in business as well, selling homemade snacks.
But Jews, Muslims, and Christians aren't the only ones involved the festival. Armenians and Druze were also represented. These Druze girls were helping their father make and sell traditional pitas.
The caricature painters were another popular draw at the festival.
The Holiday of Holidays also featured an Arab Scout marching band from Nazareth, led by Mr. Claus.
There was pomegranate juice for those in need of a fix.
The Debka group also livened things up.
But it wasn't a good day for everybody.
