Running Of The Bulls In Pamplona 2015

Running Of The Bulls In Pamplona 2015

The San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, is the same every year.
Thousands and thousands of men, women, boys and girls, dress in white and wear a red scarf. Loads of food is eaten, loads of wine is drunk and lots of fun is had by all. Six days straight.
However, San Fermin is most famous for the running of the bulls through the streets of Pamplona.
This event brings thousands of tourists to Pamplona to run the gauntlet.
Most make it, but some don't.
