San Fermin festival 2013: Running of the Bulls

Revelers from around the world have been participating in the San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, for the last nine days. Visitors take part in many festivities including the eight days of the running of the bulls, a half- mile dash from the corral with six bulls destined to die in the following bullfight. Each day includes traditional processions, music, food and lots of celebrating.-Leanne Burden Seidel (37 photos total)
