Kuraldal Festival
On the 6th of January, Pampanga’s own version of the fertility festival in Obando, Bulacan is held in Sasmuan town’s Kuraldal.

At the end of the 8:00 p.m. High Mass usually concelebrated by the archbishop and other priests, brass bands signal the start of all-night swaying, jumping, dancing festivities around the image of the town’s patron, St. Lucy, in procession snaking through the narrow streets of the poblacion.

It is believed – as in the Obando rites – that barren women who participate in the festivities invariably get pregnant.

The festivities end whence they started – at the parish church – to the song “Santa Lucia.”
