DirectRooms.com – Jerusalem parade set to welcome tens of thousands of Christians in October 2011
DirectRooms announces that up to 70,000 people are due to walk the streets of Jerusalem in a show of support for Israel this October.
The Annual Jerusalem March is an event held to mark the Feast of Tabernacles and thousands of Christians from around the world will be coming to celebrate the event. Thousands of Israelis are also set to attend the peaceful parade that stretches throughout the city centre.
Supporters will be lining the streets to cheer on the walkers and there are two courses laid out for attendees. The first and main event will run from Ammunition Hill, over to Mount Scopus before heading past eastern Jerusalem neighbourhoods and culminating in Sacher Park.
People of all ages will be joining the walk and in some cases bright banners and costumes are expected to fill the streets. The parade is Israel’s biggest tourist event and may see certain celebrities entertaining the crowds along with addresses by prominent national figures.
The parade will have two routes either 6km or 12km, with both walks occurring on 18th October 2011. Everyone is free to attend but visitors are being warned that Jerusalem City Centre hotels with availability will be extremely hard to find over this date.
Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms commented: “Such a heavy increase in visitor numbers will cause problems for hotels which in some cases will struggle to accommodate people. For anyone attending that hasn’t booked a hotel already the advice is to go online to check rates and get hold of a room as soon as possible.”
