People don’t always have traditions for Independence Day. Eid is spent meeting family members and going to lunches or dinners but no one really does anything special for 14th August, which is pretty sad.

But thankfully there are tons of events happening around Pakistan this year, and we have compiled them in a list for you, for every city!

Take a look and see what kind of celebration you want to have.

You’re welcome.
