#64 Only in Spain!
No, its not Pamplona!
But it is Dénia's version of running with the bulls. During the fiesta of Bous a la Mar a few (not very macho) bulls jog down the high street as far as a 'bullring' by the sea. There the local lads do their best to taunt the bulls so that they charge and end up falling into the sea (boys and/or bulls).
Its a *bit* dangerous. The bulls do have horns (although the one with the bell looks suspiciously like an out of work cow). There are no 'Health and Safety' regulations here, however - so its all quite all right.
