Every last Sunday of January is the feast day of Sto. Niño de Malolos, the patron saint of Barangay Sto. Niño or formerly known as the Kamestisuhan street where old houses and mansions can be found. The event was organized by the Sto.

There are also images coming from Manila, Cebu, Dumaguete, Isabela and in the other part of the globe like America and Canada. The feast day is a celebration of light and colours as seen in the beautifully designed and lighted carrozas. Sto.
