Come be a part of the Running of the Bulls in New Orleans on July 9th 2011! New Orleans has its own tradition of a Running of the Bulls festival in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This festival isn’t quite as dangerous as the actual running of the bulls in Spain. The “bulls” are local women from the “Big Easy Rollergirls” the New Orleans Roller Derby team. These bulls skate along behind the runners, and “gore” them by hitting them with foam bats. Come take part in this wacky tradition and experience some of the unique fun the New Orleans French Quarter has to offer!
All of these festivals are easily accessible by streetcar and are just a short distance away from your New Orleans Garden District Bed and Breakfast, Southern Comfort. So come on down to New Orleans in July and experience some of the most unique festivals this city has to offer!
