In the depths of summer, New Orleanians recreate Spain's running of the bulls...sort of. Thousands dress in white and wear red scarves, proceed to get rip roaring drunk, and then run through the streets chased by 'bulls'...roller derby girls with horned helmets brandishing plastic baseball bats. This is a real thing, and it is amazing.
The 'bull run' is unleashed in the CBD/Warehouse District. Check the festival website for the exact route.
