15 of the Most Dangerous Festivals Around the World
Running of the Bulls, Spain
Held every year from July 6 to July 8 in Pamplona, Spain, Running of the Bulls is another most dangerous festival.
Believed to have originated in the 13th century, it coincides with the religious San Fermin festival. The event participants have to abide by strict rules to avoid accidents.
Still, accidents do happen. Every day, fighting bulls run down a narrow, winding 825-meter-long fenced alley with participants racing ahead and along with the animals to the bull ring at the end of the route.
There have been 15 deaths and hundreds of injuries during the event since 1924.
