Smoked herrings and snake games have colored Eid celebrations of ousted President Mohamed Morsi's supporters in Cairo and Giza.
In Rabaa al-Adawiya Square in Cairo, boxes of smoked herring emblazon with the "Herring Against Coup" slogan flooded the square.
Smoked herring is a favorite meal for millions of Egyptians during the Islamic feast.
Traditional Ediya (cash) stamped with the motto "Egypt Against Coup" and gifts have been handed out to children in the square.
Pro-Morsi demonstrators have been camping out in Rabaa al-Adawiya Square since his removal by the military on July 3 following mass protests against him.
Protest organizers have said that they would establish a makeshift park inside the square to entertain children during Eid.
"The amusement park is one of the top destinations that children visit during the Eid with their fathers, and since the fathers would be here in the square, we thought of setting up 'Rabaa Park' here," the coordinator of "Children against Coup" movement told Anadolu Agency.
Rabaa Park would feature outdoor activities, water games and many other amusement games, said the coordinator, who declined to be named fearing arrest.
"If fathers usually pay a lot to take their kids to the amusement parks, we would offer them this free-of-charge," said the coordinator.
In Nahda Square, another protest site for Morsi supporters, snake games have dominated the Eid celebrations in the area.
Ever since his ouster, Morsi supporters have been staging daily rallies and sit-ins to defend his democratic legitimacy and demand his reinstatement.
The government has described the two sit-ins in Rabaa and Nahda squares as a "threat" to national security and mandated the interior minister to take "all necessary measures" to disperse them.
