Pamplona, Spain

Spain’s iconic Sanfermines festival kicked off on Thursday in the northern city of Pamplona.

After two years of cancellations due to coronavirus restrictions, thousands of people dressed in traditional white and red Sanfermine clothes gathered in the town hall square for the “txupinazo”, a rocket fired from a balcony in Pamplona that mark the beginning of festivities that will last until July 14.
