Tabun a barangay on the northeast end of the city, beside Capaya; its name means “irrigation dam” which is explained by its proximity to the Abacan River. Many other places in Pampanga are named after the tabun.

Tabun is an expanse of fertile agricultural land, where rice and sugarcane are widely cultivated. Because of its proximity to the Abacan river and creeks nearby irrigation was never a problem. Rice yields abound as well as sugarcane. A cornucopia of vegetables and fruits were also grown by farmers, not only to augment their income but to put the fertile land to good use. According to some elders in his barangay, Tabun is a peaceful place to live in until World War II.
