The Festival San Fermin: Pamplona, Spain
The Festival San Fermin is a week-long celebration that runs every year (except for this year) from the 6th to 14th July in Pamplona, northern Spain.
The festival includes craft fairs, street parties, and the Procession of Giants and BigHeads. During this parade, 25 beloved paper mache characters of kings, queens, coppers, and horses, enchant and frighten the children of Pamplona. The costumes, weighing on average 62 kilos and 4 meters tall, are the work of local artist Felix Flores, commissioned in 1890.
The highlight of the week of course is the spectacle that is the Running of the Bulls. Participants outrun a small group of cattle along a historic route used to transport bulls from grazing land to the bull ring in town.
In honor of the Running of the Bulls, we present the Bull's Milk Bevy made with rum, cognac, milk and maple syrup. Yum!
