The annual nine-day Fiesta de San Fermín began in Pamplona, Spain, last week. The festival, including the famous running of the bulls, attracts thousands of visitors every year. The fiesta kicks off as massive crowds await the chupinazo in Pamplona’s town square, followed by a carnival, fireworks, the running of the bulls, and many bullfights. Gathered here are images from some of the first runs this year.
