Running Of The Bulls Comes To America
These bull runs, however, are nothing like the original Running of the Bulls. The bulls won't be running through streets to a stadium: instead, they'll chase people sprinting down a quarter-mile track. Those who don't want to risk being marred by bulls can watch their matador wannabe friends from the stands, or take part in the capitalization of another tradition. The company is also hosting a tomato fight inspired by La Tomatina (which actually takes place in Valencia, Spain). For a fee, participants can join a massive food fight and not have to worry about cleaning up afterward.
"This is the real deal, modeled after the famous San Fermin festival in Pamplona, Spain, but without all the time and money required for a trip to Europe," boasts the creators of the event on their website. But really, there is nothing real or authentic about this.
