Each year, from 6th till 14th July, the word “Fiesta” is written with a capital F in Pamplona. The San Fermin festivities are here.
When the “chupinazo” rocket is fired, the city transforms into an explosion of life. Thousands of people from around the world flood the streets of this city, which is awash with white and red. Over these days the streets are filled with fraternity, happiness and a buzzing atmosphere, marked by the rhythm of the charanga brass bands and the peña social clubs. The bull run is the only moment of the day in which the festivities are paused and tension invades the route minutes before the bulls set off on their race on the heels of the runners. The fiesta continues with the “caldico” consommé, the hot chocolate with churros, the procession, the giants and big heads, the aperitif, the bull fight, and the fireworks that announce the arrival of the buzzing night-life.
