MANILA, Jan. 14 — President Benigno S. Aquino III extended his greeting on Monday to the people of the city of Tarlac who are celebrating the 2nd Melting Pot Festival.

President Aquino hopes that the celebration of the 2nd Melting Pot Festival will inspire fellow Tarlaqueños to reach greater heights and secure lasting stability and equitable prosperity.

"Always demonstrate your passion and industry as you uphold your pride as Tarlaqueños and as Filipinos," he said.

The Melting Pot Festival is a multicultural celebration incorporating many different ethnic cultures. (PNA)
