The festival of San Fermín in the city of Pamplona (Navarre, Spain) is a deeply rooted celebration held annually from 12:00, 6 July, when the opening of the party is marked by setting off the pyrotechnic chupinazo to midnight 14 July. The most famous event is the encierro, or the running of the bulls, which happens at 8:00 am from 7 July to 14 July.
The event is dangerous. Since 1925, 15 people have been killed during the event and every year between 200 and 300 people are injured during the run although most injuries are contusions due to falls and are not serious.
