Running of the Bulls or in Spain known as San Fermin in celebrated in Pamplona, Spain every year from 6th to the 14th of July. It has become internationally famous where the bulls are lead through the streets of the old quarter as far as the bull ring by runners.
This monthly festival spotlight, Running of the Bulls, is is religious festival, but this has taken a secondary role over the last number of years, nowadays the fiestas are seen as mass gathering of people traveling from around the world to party in the streets. The origin of the festival was to take the bulls from outside the city into the bullring. The run usually lasts between three and four minutes, although it has been know to take over ten minutes due to one of the bulls being isolated from the pack.
The running of the bulls is an unrepeatable experience for spectators and runners alike. It is a spectacle that is defined by the level of risk and the physical ability of the runners. It requires the runners to have cool nerves, quick reflexes and a high level of fitness. It is highly dangerous to take part so these three attributes are essential.
For security reasons, a double fence marks out the route of the bull run through the streets. It is made of over 3,000 wooden parts (planks, posts, gates, etc.). Part of the fence stays put throughout the fiesta but other sections are assembled and disassembled every day by a special brigade of workers. – Site Event should open up a Spanish Depot to be able to supply this iconic event!
