The Running of the Bulls in New Orleans

The fun in the French Quarter continues with the Running of the Bulls (San Fermin en Nueva Orleans), July 12-15. While not quite as death defying as the Pamplona, Spain tradition, it’s still a great excuse to run screaming through the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans.

After days and nights of music and culture, come home to your New Orleans Bed & Breakfast Inn. There’s no better way to stay when you’re in New Orleans. Click here to find your New Orleans B&B.
