5th Bull run of San Fermin festival in Pamplona

San Fermin festival

Participants run beside Jandilla’s fighting bulls during the fifth bull run of the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, northern Spain on July 11, 2017. Each day at 8:00 am hundreds of people race with six bulls, charging along a winding, 848.6-metre (more than half a mile) course through narrow streets to the city’s bull ring, where the animals are killed in a bullfight or corrida, during this festival, immortalised in Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel “The Sun Also Rises” and dating back to medieval times and also featuring religious processions, folk dancing, concerts and round-the-clock drinking.
