One of the more famous and spectacular fiestas celebrated in Pamplona is the San Fermin Fiesta. This is a worldwide attention grabbing fiesta as the whole world tunes in on the television to view the herd of frenzy bulls rampaging through the town streets with hundreds of participants in traditional attire running ahead of the bulls trying to avoid bloodshed.These bull-run participants don white shirts and red belts to dash ahead of the bulls behind which leave some injured or exhilarated.

Pamplona thrills the worldwide audience with this spectacle every year as it is a steadfast tradition celebrated.The bull running ends at the town bullring where bullfights come on in the evening by experienced and skilled toreros.

July fiestas begin on its thirteenth day where the las tres Vacas fiesta is celebrated in the Roncal valley. An ancient agreement since 1375 obligates the French Baretous valley inhabitants to settle a yearly tribute of 3 cows to Piedra San Martín inhabitants.
