VIJAYAWADA: While some youngsters in the city celebrated the Friendship Day by exchanging colourful bands and attractive greeting cards, the others thronged coffee shops, parks, malls, restaurants and theatres in groups to slip into nostalgia.

Restaurants like Southern Spice, Midas and Temptations were filled with youngsters celebrating their friendship. K Keerthi, an M.Sc student of Andhra Loyola College, who was celebrating Friendship Day at Midas, said that it was a special day to celebrate and exchange promises as ‘friends are forever’.

Planet Fun, a food and entertainment zone in the city, was booked for parties two days before. Planet Fun manager A Kalyan said, “Coinciding with the Friendship Day Sunday, we have youngsters coming the whole day and the banquet hall was booked much in advance. The bowling and gaming zone stands as the main attraction and they are likely to spend more time hanging around with friends,” he added.

On account of the Friendship Day, Temptations distributed friendship bands to the customers and gifted them in the end.

With the excitement among the youth to celebrate the occasion, bakeries in the city sold a record number of cakes with Friendship Day quotes. Navrang Bakery manager S Suresh said, “The day has generated a lot of interest for celebration among the youth and teenagers with cakes. Compared to last year more cakes have been sold this time.”

This Friendship Day also  provided an opportunity for job-holders to gather and recall their old days. The old students of Sree Vani Public School in the city gathered in Southern Spice to remember their school days. “This day just turned very special with all my schoolmates meeting after seven years,” said N Ajay.
