Thousands of revelers crammed into the main square and adjacent narrow streets of northern Pamplona on Sunday for the start of Spain’s famed San Fermin running of the bulls festival — a potent mix of adrenaline and alcohol-fueled celebrations that span over a week. The fiesta, an uproarious blend of hair-raising daily bull runs and all-night partying, was immortalized in Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises. The event still attracts huge crowds — and headlines of people being injured by the bulls — every year. Revelers wearing traditional white outfits trimmed with red neckerchiefs and cummerbunds gathered for the noontime launching of a firework rocket, which signals the beginning of the nine-day festival.
