  Basant @ F-9 Park
by fashionapple

Basant festival is celebrated in Lahore and rest of Punjab to welcome spring in February. Its main attraction is kite flying. Islamabad is rated as boring city in terms of social activities. With the passage of time scenario is changing rapidly. Now Margalla Festival is arranged every year in March- April to welcome Spring season. Fatima Jinnah Park in F-9 is the venue of this festival in which people of twin cities participate very actively.

Kite flying, concerts, flower exhibitions, darmas, stage shows and lot of other activities are held to celebrate spring. Many multinational and private companies find it an attractive opportunity to promote themself so they put up stalls and offer free kites with promotinal material to guests.Special food stalls and traditional dancing parties are also there and add true colors to celebrations.

Address: Fatima Jinnah park, Sector F-9, Islamabad
