Get Ready for the NOLA Bull Run!
The 11th Annual San Fermin in Nueva Orleans will hit the streets of New Orleans from July 7-9, 2017. The Annual Encierro (bull run) festival in New Orleans pays homage to the world famous Encierro of Pamplona, Spain, or “The Running of the Bulls.” But, there is definitely one small difference – the NOLA bulls are none other than the Big Easy Rollergirls and participants from other roller derby leagues across the country!
Release The Bulls
There are events all weekend long, but it is El Encierro that is one of the most exciting events of the weekend. On Saturday, July 8, 2017, starting at around 6:30am participants will start to gather at The Sugar Mill dressed in their running attire. You can expect to see 18,000 participants and 400 Roller Bulls.The runner’s uniform consists of white shirt, white pants or shorts, and a piece of red cloth or sash around the neck or waste. This allows the roller bulls to know who they are out to chase throughout the run. The Procession of San Fermin kicks off the morning and an invocation precedes the Running of the Bulls at 8 AM SHARP! Following the event enjoy DJ RQaway live music from The Zydepunks, food and lots of fun. All proceeds from the event will go to Beth’s Friends Forever and Animal Rescue New Orleans.
