Day four of the nine-day San Fermin festival took place in Pamplona, Spain. The running of the bulls were made famous in Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel “The Sun Also Rises.” The running consists of an early morning half-mile dash from the corral to the bullring alongside six bulls destined to die in the afternoon’s bullfight. This is followed by processions of giant traditional figures, concerts, firebulls, fireworks, and large doses of eating, drinking, dancing and late nights.
