Running of the Bulls in New Orleans



San Fermin in Nueva Orleans is a festival that begins today and runs through Sunday. It is a homage to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain, which is also happening this week. If you can't make it to Spain, you can run with the "bulls" this Saturday in New Orleans!
The event will replicate and pay homage to the world famous Encierro of Pamplona, Spain, aka The Running of the Bulls, only our bulls are members of New Orleans’ all-female flat-track derby team the Big Easy Rollergirls and select participants from other rollerderby leagues across the country!

Oh, and there will be a special appearance by a group of Elvises on wheels as well! Link -Thanks, John Brauner!

That's right, I forgot that Americans copy other cultures traditions without retaining any of the historic or cultural meaning or significance and turn it into some self- gratifying fools folly. In the running of the bulls, the bulls are herded from one area to another where they will be slaughtered the next day.

Good for the people of New Orleans, this san Fermin looks funnier than Pamplona's.

Next idea La tomatina, a huge tomato battle. http://www.latomatina.org/
