Within the major festivals, a lot of leisure, sports and religious acts take place. Amongst the religious events, the most important are the major mass, the mascletà, the procession, and the firework displays. At the first weekend in May, the passa takes place, a pilgrimage and moving of the image of the patron saint from the hermitage of San Cristobal (located in the irrigated areas in Alboraya) to the church. Exhibitions and sporting competitions play an important role in a programme crammed with bullfighting, musical and pyrotechnical events. Moreover, during these days the tiger nut milk fiesta is held.
