After the 40 days of lent begins the celebrations of various feasts in honor of the patron or other saints of the churches and chapels. The month of may is a favored month for such festivities. Many villages have feasts celebrated on Sundays in the month of May. Some feasts were also celebrated on week days, according to the Roman Catholic calendar.

The feast is preceded by the nine days novenas and especially in the village the preparatory days and the feast day was an occasion for rejoicing and meeting relatives and friends who were away during the year.

The band winds its way from the church through the village or city playing a special rendition called Alvarado which literally means dawn.
