On the third Sunday of November each year, parishioners carry the religious image of Santa Ana from Tamaimo, accompanied by other images from different neighborhoods of the municipality, as was done in 1909 - the year of the eruption of the Chineyro volcano - to the area of ​​El Calvario in Las Manchas. According to legend, the lava stopped - saving the town from certain destruction - after the image of Santa Ana was laid upon the lava flow. Since then, every year the images are taken to the place where the lava stopped.
