Pasolo derived its names from “Sulo”, the torch used by kaputeneros during the revolution.  The barangay was divided into two areas stemming from an ancient-old dispute. Because of this division, residents celebrate two different fiestas in honor of the Patron Saint Sta. Cruz. The first is celebrated every first Saturday of may at the Bisita Chapel. The second festivity occurs every first Sunday of May at the Sta. Cruz Church.
