The bull run of Pamplona


Every year in July the Spanish city of Pamplona holds its deeply rooted San Fermin fiesta, world famous for its bull runs. Every year about 1.5 million people are expected to attend the celebration. Thousands of mainly young men run with 6 bulls and 6 oxes to the arena of Pamplona. More and more tourists are joining the run. Every year about 300 people get injured. The fighting bulls are led to the arena where they will be killed in a bullfight in the evening. Children in Pamplona have their own children’s run with bulls-on-wheels since 2014. Until 1991 there was a children’s run with small bulls, but that was prohibited because it was too dangerous. Some people hope the same will happen with the adults bull run. What do children think about it?
