san fermin'Encierro de San Fermín'
The 'encierros' start daily sharp at 8.00 a.m. from July 7th to 14th. Its a race of youngsters in front of brave bulls and the most awaited event of these celebrations. The race lasts around 3 minutes, or a lot more if there's any sort of incident (which there are). You can always watch it form behind the protection structures, though you better wake up early to get a good place. This event attracts thousands every year to Pamplona.
