Today marks the beginning of Spain’s Running of the Bulls. The Running of the Bulls is a practice that involves running in front of a small group (typically a dozen) of bulls that have been let loose, on a course of a sectioned-off subset of a town's streets. The most famous running of the bulls is that of the seven-day festival of Sanfermines in honour of San Fermín in Pamplona although they are held in towns and villages across Spain, Portugal, and in some cities in Mexico Mesquite, Nevada, and southern France , during the summer. Unlike bullfights, which are performed by professionals, anyone older than 18 may participate in an encierro.
