    Flores de Mayo, as the name implies, is focused on offering flowers and praying the rosary in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Here, the people gather in the church wearing their Sunday dresses and give praise to the Virgin Mary.

    Santacruzan is a procession which portrays the finding of the cross by Reyna Elena and Constantine. After they have found the holy cross, they go back to the church to celebrate and give thanks.
