However, it is only in the last few years that this sort of immense support has become common. Earlier, people didn’t celebrate this event very enthusiastically. However, they came to understand its importance when the perimeters of economic growth were being breached.

The most vibrant and colorful city, Lahore, which is considered to be the capital of Pakistan, also turns out to be a major spot for the gathering. The party atmosphere prevailing in this city is something that cannot be described in words.
Lahore, being a major commercial city, is thronged by hundreds of people. Those from other cities who come here on any other occasion, have to travel long distances just to get into the right place.

So for people who do not have access to evening events, this is the perfect choice. This is a way to let the teenagers enjoy and forget their worries without having to go anywhere.
A teenager’s party in Pakistan is quite different from the ones that we celebrate in the West. In the Pakistani culture, holding a party is considered to be a social obligation. As a result, a lot of the planning is done well in advance so that the event is a success. This is because in Pakistan, a party is not held unless it is attended by at least ten children. If it is attended by more than ten children, then the celebration becomes a failure.
When it comes to the food served at the Proton celebrations, the best dishes are chicken kebabs. They are served along with tandoori chicken. In addition to this, fried pakoras are also very popular at the celebrations. This is because Pakistanis consider it as a traditional food that is cooked and eaten during celebrations.
