Festival highlights

for those of you who don’t know, Ramat Gan is a neighbor of the city of Tel Aviv and sometimes also tries to compete with it, this time they succeeded in winning big. The festival of light will begin on April 3, 2023, and will last for about 10 days. The festival will be held in the well-maintained and beautiful national park of Ramat Gan. You must be wondering what can be seen and if it is worth coming.

A bit about the lighting at the festival

The concept of this festival of light is galaxies, so right at the entrance you will get that feeling, the tops of the trees were illuminated using special projectors in shades of blue and purple that put you right into a mysterious atmosphere.

After passing the main gate, you can see the display of the giant sabion flowers that were placed above the lake. Later you will pass by the all-seeing eye and then you will come to the jellyfish in a space that floats above the lake and this is just the beginning….

Continue walking around the lake and then you will reach the area of sculpted flowers and floating lilies (the flower exhibition), after that, you will see two giant displays, the baby on which you can protect your face on it and hands of love, at this stage you will already notice from a distance an incomprehensible movement of light on the giant eucalyptus trees, these are a flock of illuminated birds who arrived for the first time at the lighting festival (huge spectacular display).
Well, there is much more to see and enjoy with all the family and friends and I will share more photos and videos from the festival here

The Festival Displays

Did I mention light displays? Here are some details about the lights displays and their talented creators


Let’s start with one of the most impressive and large displays at the festival, 2 enormous hands (about 12 meters high) that together form the shape of a heart.

The work was created during the corona epidemic in the United States (Scottsdale Hospital) when the residents of the city wanted to express gratitude and support to the medical teams during the epidemic.

On the display that impressive itself, they created an amazing and mesmerizing video art that cannot be ignored

The display was created by Merav Eitan and Gaston Zahar
