Holding more than one Eid prayer in one city

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

The Muslim organization has rented a large hall to hold the Eid prayers. Is it permissible for a group that is approximately thirty miles away from the hall to organize Eid prayers in their own mosque? Please note that means of transportation are available. Is it better to bring together most of the Muslims in the hall to offer the Eid prayers instead of having more than one jamaa’ah?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If you can join together, that is preferable, but if that will be too difficult for you, there is nothing wrong with them praying in their own city that is thirty miles away from the place where the Eid prayers are being held, which makes it difficult for them to join together. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
