Jashan-E-Baharan - Canal Mela Lahore - 2014

The Canal came to life on Saturday with 23 beautifully decorated floats; wire models of flowers, butterflies and women in traditional attire; and fairy lights along the stretch between The Mall and Jail Road.

Some of the floats feature national land marks including the Ziarat Residency, the Quaid’s mausoleum and Khyber Pass. Another float features men, attired in traditional clothing, dancing. A PHA official said they had designed four floats specifically to catch the children’s attention…the most popular among these appeared to be the one featuring the Angry Birds characters. Two elaborately designed peacocks bow to form a gateway at The Mall end.
