San Fermines Festival: The Running of the Bulls
Each year a large number of New Zealanders travel to Pamplona in Spain for the Running of the Bulls Festival that takes place from 6 - 14 July.
The nature of the festival, together with the large numbers of visitors in one place, can lead to an increased number of robberies and every year a number of people are injured and hospitalised.
The New Zealand Embassy in Spain has advice for those going to Pamplona on their website www.nzembassy.com/spain.
We encourage New Zealanders attending the festival to read this information and take the precautions advised.
