Sure, there’s the running of the bulls happening right now in Pamplona, Spain, but if you can’t make it overseas to the San Fermin Festival, well, you could do worse than traveling to New Orleans next year for what will hopefully become an annual tradition.
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!
This might be the only time I would enjoy getting trampled by a bull. If you ask me kindly, I’ll tell you about the time I ran with the bulls in Spain. And I use the term “run” loosely. [via neatorama]
