The Second day of the Youth Fest was the realization of a dream for most of the youngsters gathered as they had an opportunity to meet Don Bosco in the person of Fr Angel Fernandez Artime, Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco. The youngsters welcome Fr Angel with different cultural dances and a solemn guard of Honor. He was accompanied by Rev.
