Tarlac Leg

Once popular as a “stopover” for weary travellers to grab a bite (or answer the call of nature), in truth, Tarlac deserves a thorough “look-over” with its historical, religious, and tourist attractions. To name a few – the Aquino Museum, Capas Shrine, reliquary of the True Cross of Jesus, Lubigan Eco-Tourism Park, Hacienda Luisita – all can be found in Tarlac.

And on June 22-23, Tarlac is set to unveil another attraction as it hosts the biggest wedding expo yet to be organized in North Luzon.

Locally dubbed Kasalang Tarlaqueño, the event will take stage at the Aquino Center, one of Tarlac’s elegant wedding venues, and it will showcase more than 50 different wedding suppliers from North and Central Luzon.

Organized by the Tarlac Convention & Visitors Bureau, in cooperation with the Department of Tourism Region 3, the wedding fair will be opened with a motorcade and MalaTarlak festival street dancing exhibition. Aside from the exquisite wedding displays, fair guests will also witness the wedding photo contest as well as the thematic wedding table setup competition.

Ever Bilena, the event’s official makeup partner, will show brides-to-be how to properly choose and apply cosmetics. On the other hand, Café Maja Rica, one of Tarlac’s sought-after caterers, will do a cooking demo to help couples prepare for their new home. A very special fashion show by Tarlac’s prominent designers will cap the event.

To-be weds will receive a special token upon registration. Special discounts, promos are in store for them when they book/reserve during the event with any of the participating wedding suppliers.
