The Fiesta of San Fermin is largely lived
by night. Many people start their day when they get
up for a late lunch at about three or four in the afternoon.
They gradually come to life watching the Tour de France
which is being broadcast live on TV at about that time
of the day.
Then it's time to start preparing the victuals and things
for the bull-fight which will take place at 6.30 in
the afternoon. If you go with a crowd and to the part
where the "Peñas" are, you will probably
be preparing a fairly generous picnic box - sangria,
ice, salad, hot food or bread-rolls, coffee...The bull-fight
is the real start of the day for many people. When that
is over, there are a few spare hours free until supper
time which can be filled in by taking in some
different street activites which will be going on
around the town at that time.
After dinner you can enjoy the sanfermin night. We will
give you a little description of our favourite streets
and bars. You can do whatever you want, till your
body tells you to stop or daybreak, the dianas
start to play and it is time to see
or take part in the
running of the bulls.
