Roller Derby Girls dressed as bulls take part in San Fermín in Nueva Orleans at the Sugar Mill Saturday, August 24, 2019. The NOLA Running of the Bulls parodies the same event in Pamplona, Spain in July and is usually held the same weekend but the New Orleans event was postponed due to Hurricane Barry. The Big Easy Roller Girls and other roller derby groups from around the country whack the behinds of runners with whiffle ball bats and the ladies bring the horns. Various Mardi Gras Krewes take part including the Rolling Elvi, the Merry Antoinettes, and Lucha Krewe. Photo by Matthew Hinton
