Roller Derby RebellionNew Orleans, USA

Forget Pamplona. When it comes to running with bulls, we’re heading to San Fermin in Nueva Orleans (that’s New Orleans for those of you with rusty Spanish). No cows are harmed in the making of this encierro (bull run). Instead 400 women from the city’s Big Easy Rollergirls, New Orleans’ flat-track derby team, dress in red, chase down the more than 18,000 runners over a 12-block French Quarter course and thump them with foam bats. Anyone taking on the roller bulls has to wear white and tie a piece of red cloth around their neck and waist. And this is New Orleans, so as well as the main event there’s a whole string of parties to round out the entire weekend, which takes place in July.
