The Feast Day of Saint Martha is celebrated by a mass followed by a procession called Pandangguhan sa Kalye. During this procession, a pasubo is handed to the participants.
The festival dates back to a legend known to the people in Pateros. According to the legend, a crocodile attacked the people and the farm animals. Without anything else to do, the people prayed to Saint Martha for protection. Soon after, Saint Martha drove the crocodile away.
Because the legend speaks of a crocodile, the procession is pursued by a replica of the said crocodile. The crocodile replica is large enough to have people dance on its back.
The feast was originally celebrated during July 29 but was transferred to the month of February.
