If today we took a walk in Pamplona you could tell that we have few days left for San Fermin! In most of the city shops, the windows are decorated with the San Fermin Festival theme and obviously the predominant colours are white and red. Another sign that the San Fermin Festival is approaching is that the Caritas Gair (Navarra´s main charity organization to help people in need), was installed in June at the Paseo de Sarasate and it will be removed for late July as this main street has to be free during San Fermin Festival. It's a tradition to buy tickets in this tombola. There are direct prizes and several cars will be given away as some holiday packages. Few days ago I bought 5 tickets (each one at 0.80 €), 4 of them was for the cars and one ticket for a prize of viewing a picture in the cinema for 2 people. I think it´s important to know that all the staff working in the raffle does it voluntarily.
In the streets among the San Fermin Running of the Bulls itinerary it´s all very lively right now as all those that we live among these streets we have start to thoroughly wash up our balconies and windows so everything is ready for our visitors. I must say it´sa bit tiring as we are located in the Dead Man Corner and have 8 spots in total, 6 overlooking Estafeta and 2 Mercederes St.! But I know is worth while as I love to have everyone experiencing the best San Fermin Festival! ;-) I can also see how all the bars and restaurants are being provided with all the food and drinks, well mainly drinks as this is the main area for drinking rather than eating.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO RENT A SPOT FROM A PRIVILEGED BALCONY, RIGHT IN THE DEAD MAN CORNER, TO WATCH THE RUNNING OF THE BULLS IN SAN FERMIN FESTIVAL, LOG IN THIS LINK AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED!
