By Cutacut Editorial Team

KARACHI: The week is finally over and weekend is here to recharge us. If you want some ideas on what you can do in the next two days, here are a few options:

1. Flower Show 2019

Keep back your sweaters and shawls to where they belong in the tiny corner of your cupboard. This is the most you get in Karachi, after all. Spring (read summers Karachiites) is here and the annual flower show at Seaview is up. Even if you are not into gardening, the flower show really brightens up your day with all the lovely colors and sprawl of arrangements florists do. Plus you can always enjoy the view of the beach with that too. Last three days left, so head over soon.

Date & Time: Feb 22 to Feb 24, 10am to 10pm

Address: Seaview Park: Phase 5, Defence Housing Authority, Karachi

4. 3100 Meters Above Sea Level-An IEI Pakistan Documentary
