San Fermines 2015

Today is the second day of one of the maddest fun parties in the world – the San Fermines of Pamplona.

Yesterday, on the main city square:

The clock on the city hall is showing that only one hour is left before the firing of the chupinazo – a pyrotechnic rocket that marks the official beginning of the festivities.

Signature red handkerchiefs (pañoletas) are held up, as the gathered crowds are waiting for the bang.

Champagne flowing minutes after the chupinazo – everyone is soaked, handkerchiefs and all. The party is on!

The modern version of the Pamplona espadrille: a San Fermines themed textile sneaker with a rubber sole, created by Callaghan, a high-quality active lifestyle shoe company from the region of La Rioja. Very practical for running away if you are chased by something or someone!

A street in Pamplona named after Day 2. For a party to be good, it has to be taken seriously!

Once again, I’m left wishing that I was there. Next year perhaps!
