Vejer de la Frontera Local Customs: 7 reviews and 7 photos
This old (27 years) tradition, also called "Toro del Aleluya" consists basically in chasing along some town streets a 500kg bull with balls. And I don't mean the kind of balls you are thinking of... the ones these bulls wear are plastic balls at the end of their horns, so they are less harmful (though harmful enough anyway!).
To make it simple, is like Pamplona's "San Fermines" but with just one bull...
It takes place on the Resurrection Sunday of the Easter week (the last sunday).
