Adloyada and Purim celebrations in Tel Aviv from the years 1934 and 1935. A bulletin board announces the upcoming Adloyada parade. The Adloyada Commissions offices are decorated with paintings. The procession begins. Thousands of people gather in the streets of Tel Aviv, waving flags and watching a dance performance on one of the stages. Young people and kids in customs stand on various floaters that move through the crowd. One float represents German slavery and presents a large swastika and Nazi soldiers. The parade also includes youth and kids dressed up as ancient Egyptians and temple priests, floats of the biblical golden calf and the whale from the story of Noah, and even a convoy of camels. The parade also features commercial floats with advertisements for various companies such as Lodzia, Assis, Elite, Shemen and more. A float that calls for a boycott of German products presents a prison cell with a swastika inside. The Fire Brigade marches and plays, followed by a group of Tel Aviv city employees. Children in biblical attire carry the symbols of the tribes of Israel and lead a herd of cows.
