On this occasion, various cultural exhibitions were also presented including ikebana
(Japanese art of floral arrangements), origami (Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures), and bonsai (the art of growing ornamental, artificially dwarfed varieties of tress) displays, pop culture show and band session.
Also, five Ikebana
groups showcased beautiful flower arrangements and the Pakistan Bonsai Society exhibited Bonsai (Japanese art of growing a miniature tree in a container) around the venue.
