If you missed the Christmas cheer in Nepal, you will appreciate the festive spirit of this street festival in which the Lakeside road from Hallan Chowk to Barahi Chowk is closed to traffic. Cafés and restaurants fill the street with tables and chairs and both foreigners and Nepali tourists come to soak up all the food, parades and musical performances. There are also carnival rides and amusements which take place in Basundhara Park in south Lakeside throughout the festival. On New Year’s Eve, Lakeside is typically jam-packed full of people, making it difficult even to walk down the road. There is also a fireworks display at midnight in Basundhara park.
