ISLAMABAD (PPI)- All most all picnic spots and public parks in the twin cities Rawalpindi and Islamabad witnessed the traditional festive mess during Eid holidays, as those left behind tried to make the best of the occasion. Pir Sohawa or Daman-e-Koh on the Margallas or Shakarparian, Rose and Jasmine Garden or Rawal Lake View Park, Marghazar Zoo, Chattar Park, Nawaz Sharif Park, Simly Dam,  Liaquat Bagh Park, Fatima Jinnah Park, Ayub National Park, Nawaz Sharif Park, Women's Park and Children Park of the twin cities saw huge number of visitors with their families to enjoy the Eid holy days. On the fourth day of the Eid too, a large number of people had arrived from the surroundings to enjoy their holidays in the twin cities. Most of the people came with their families to share the happy moments. As this time Eid holidays came at the weekend, people had ample time to exchange greetings with their relatives and friends and then spend some time with their families. Bright and sunny weather also enticed people to come out of their homes and visit picnic spots. People crowded into Ayub Park, Playland and Nawaz Sharif park. At these parks, stall-holders selling burgers, chips, fruit and Channa Chat, Gol Gappas, soft drinks and tea made handsome money. Many people visited small parks located nearby the residential and commercial areas to enjoy sunshine. The parking lots at the public places fell short of capacity to accommodate the Eid rush and long queues of vehicles were seen with owners patiently waiting to find an appropriate place to park their vehicles. With almost everybody trying to get as close to the destination as possible, the spots seemed choked with traffic. There was a continuous flow of traffic to and from Murree. Like always, small groups of young boys riding motorbikes turned out to be a traffic nuisance causing frequent traffic jams. Riding in-groups, these boys almost terrorized the motorists, especially those travelling with families, and caused 'near accidents' at a number of places. A visitor Arshed Malik said Eid was a fabulous festival for the Muslims as they celebrated it with enthusiasm and zeal. He said Eid brought happiness and joy for all the Muslims and the whole world. Mehwish, another visitor said she had celebrated Eid with her family members and friends by making special arrangements. She said she often visited picnic points with her family on Eid days. Though the Islamabad traffic police had made adequate arrangements to prevent the youth from performing 'heroics' on motorbikes, many of the adventurers managed to get past the check posts and special pickets to enjoy their style of biking. In addition to the regular posts, special pickets were set up to particularly check these youngsters challenging motorists and engaging other groups into competitions, a traffic police official said.   However, all efforts, at times, seemed to be falling short of expectations, as long queues of vehicles were seen on the Benazir Bhutto Road from Faizabad to well beyond Dhokri Chowk . or the other way round whenever there was a 'VVIP' or a 'VIP' movement on the route. On the other hand, strict security arrangements were made in all most all busiest roads of the twin cities. Barricades have been installed at every entry point of the Federal capital and police personnel were checking vehicles to avert any untoward incident. Islamabad police with additional contingents of rangers were deployed at the important avenues of the capital city. However markets and shopping malls of the Capital city remained deserted as the business activities remained halted due to the closure of all public and private offices. The major trade hubs including Jinnah Supermarket, Supermarket, Aabpara, Karachi Company, F-10 Markaz and Peshawar Morr remained closed and a very few shops were opened.
