The NOLA Bulls took part in San Fermín in Nueva Orleans at The Sugar Mill on Saturday. The event parodies the same event in Pamplona, Spain 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 wiffle ball bats and the ladies bring the horns.
