Beach party in Central Park!

Tel Aviv Beach
Tel Aviv (pictured) is bringing a beach party to Central Park in New York City!

Sunday, June 21st (Father’s Day), the Naumburg Bandshell will be converted into one of Israel’s world-famous Mediterranean beaches for an all-day party. It might not look exactly like the above, but we’re hoping it’s gonna be close.

The party, sponsored by the Tel Aviv-Jaffa Centennial Administration, the Foreign and Tourism ministries, and El Al Israel Airways is to celebrate Tel Aviv’s 100th birthday. And how much does it cost to build a beach in Central Park? $200,000. Worth. It.

So, whether you’re looking for a quirky way to surprise your Dad or just in need of some sand between your toes, head to Central Park on Father’s Day and check it out! There will be backgammon and matkot (beach paddle ball), a dance party, and performances by Hatikva 6, Israel’s most famous reggae band, and FLOW, a multilingual Israeli rock ‘n’ roll band. It’s gonna be nuts.
