Once a year, this small city is turned inside out by the festival of San Fermin and its two world-class tests of mettle: the running of the bulls popularized by Ernest Hemingway in "The Sun Also Rises," and the scarcity of rooms for fiesta-goers. San Fermin was a local martyr in the 3rd century, and his fiesta has kept some religious underpinnings. But the weeklong holiday is best known for its bullfights and 24-hour-a-day partying.

Good news on Monday: “Woman gored at San Fermin: More women joining in the running of bulls.” OK, sure, that's not good news for the woman who was gored (she was listed in serious condition Monday; best of luck to the young Australian). But look at the bigger picture: Until 1974, women couldn't even participate in the famed running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Now, though, women are just as able as men to be trampled by a snot-slinging, large-horned, stomping beast of a bull.

The second running of the bulls in the weeklong San Fermin festival ended Tuesday with more than 20 people knocked down by the bulls, including an American, police said. A bull tossed Fred Shields, 34, of Hermosa Beach, Calif., who broke his collar bone when he landed on his shoulder. He was treated at a hospital and released. Several other people received treatment for cuts and bruises, police said.

As one who has had the good fortune to be able to experience the richness, beauty and evolution of Spain over the last 30 years, I appreciate Sidney Sheldon's observations in "Scouting Spain" (Oct. 23) in Traveling in Style. However, he should have watched the action in the arena in San Fermin in Pamplona following the Encierro (early-morning running of the bulls), where a "professional" bull has fun goring numerous amateur bullfighters. (A professional bull, unlike those that face the matador in the early evening, is one that has been in numerous events like the Fiesta of San Fermin and knows the difference between cape and human.

Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest aren't the only reasons to visit New Orleans . The Running of the Bulls in July, when roller derby "bulls" skate through the French Quarter and "gore" each other, can be just as much crazy fun. But you have to be able to handle the sticky summer heat.  For those who can, the New Orleans Marriott has a room rate that starts at $99 a night and throws in dining discounts. The deal: The Hot Location, Cool Deal requires a four-night stay to get the sale room rate.

Stampeding bulls gored six people Saturday, injuring some of them seriously, in the first dash of Pamplona's famed San Fermin fiesta, which officials described as the most dangerous bull run of recent years. Three other people were treated for fractures and less severe injuries as the nine-day festival got into full swing. Recent rain had slicked the streets, and the powerful bulls slipped into the crowd, knocking over people who were running alongside and ahead of them.

A matador was seriously gored Thursday during the daily bullfight at the famed San Fermin festival in the northern Spanish city of Pamplona. The bull's horn pieced Vicente Bejarano's groin as he tried to plunge his sword into the animal. He was lifted into the air for several seconds. No internal organs were damaged, but the 10-inch wound would probably prevent Bejarano from ever fighting bulls again, the state-owned news agency Efe quoted Dr. Hector Ortiz as saying. Ortiz operated on Bejarano.

A charging bull gored a young Spanish man to death at Pamplona's San Fermin festival, the first such fatality in nearly 15 years. Nine others were injured in an especially dangerous and chaotic chapter of the running of the bulls. Pamplona officials identified the man as Daniel Jimeno Romero, 27, from Alcala de Henares, outside Madrid. He was on vacation with his parents and girlfriend, who identified him. The San Fermin festival website said Jimeno Romero was gored in the neck and lung during a run in which a bull separated from the pack.

Three Spaniards and an English-speaking tourist were injured today in the first running of the bulls at the San Fermin fiesta made famous by Ernest Hemingway. Hundreds of daredevils raced ahead of six fighting bulls along the 898-yard route from a corral near City Hall to the bullring in the festival's first daily scramble to outrace the horned beasts. None of the four men injured was seriously hurt, officials said.
