Why do we love this
We love that you get the chance to witness the epic Pamplona bull run in the flesh! And following it up with a party in the park is pretty cool too.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Get ready to experience Spain's epic festival, San Fermin, aka the bull run! It's one of Spain's biggest street festivals and it's a city-wide sangria-soaked street party, featuring live music, DJs, fireworks, food and plenty of good times.
The bull run itself is on many people’s bucket list, and for most its a must do in Spain. But it's not for everyone! The bulls are big, their horns are sharp and the streets are narrow. In a panic to avoid the bulls, your fellow runners will elbow you and run over the top of you. Chances are you’ll emerge from the bull run with a bruise or scratch! And there’s always the chance that something can really go wrong… which is what makes it so exhilarating!
If the bull run isn't for you, however, rest assured there'll be plenty of other fun times to be had. The run is just five minutes of each festival day and for the other 23 hours and 55 minutes, when the bulls aren’t running the city is raging! This Pamplona party is for absolutely everybody. Street parties, clubs, bars and all kinds of restaurants seem to never stop. There are live bands and DJs in every city square, park and plaza. At night the fireworks go off, and you’ll be celebrating even more!
Your Stoke campsite will keep the festivities going strong, with miniature music and cultural festival 'Stoked in the Park - Pamplona' treating you to live band performances, DJs, entertainment, food trucks, wine tasting and cooking classes. Awesome!
