מלחמת מים (Milchemet Maim- Water War) is one of the most famous and popular flash-mobs and events in Tel Aviv.
Every year hundreds of people buy water guns, bottles and buckets and on July 4 at 15:15 they begin to fight, spraying water on each other.
The first Water War was held 10 years ago, in 2004. Edan Yaron decided to gather friends around the central fountain (Rabin square) on a hot summer day, but came not only his friends, but friends of his friends. After 2004 every year in this day they (hundreds of people) and gathering in the square and spraying water. One of the features of this event is that it doesn’t have organizers. It means that this event is event for everyone.
In this year Municipality changed the place of the event- from Rabin square to the HaBima square. This action caused outrage participants, but everyone had fun and the mayor failed to spoil the party (ha-ha!)
