Description

The City Hall of Tel Aviv is pictured as the right most building in this image. The large collection of water seen is Rabin Square’s Fountain. Every summer, the city of Tel Aviv hosts a water fight in which people either run around the square with water guns and shoot each other, or jump in the fountain water in an effort to cool down. Since the water in the fountain is not clean, the city makes sure it is not wasted and uses the fountain as the main water source for the event.
