Also referred to as the “Running of the Bulls”, the San Fermin Festival in Pamplona is an annual event that commences at noon on the 6th of July. When the starting time of the festival is approaching, thousands of individuals begin congregating in the town square as they anxiously await the Mayor’s announcement to start the fiestas. Although the history of the festival is somewhat cloudy, there is evidence to indicate that celebratory events took place as far back as the 13th century on October 10th which coincided with the festival.


The Running of the Bulls, the encierro in Spanish, is the most anticipated part of the Fiesta de San Fermín. I still remember the first time I learned of this event; my teacher had shown us a YouTube video in Spanish class.
