Running of the Bulls opening day festivities (Mark Schipper)

Former DNAinfo writer Mark Schipper is attending the San Fermin Festival in Spain, and he joins The Matt Bubala Show to share his experiences about Chupinazo, or the opening day celebrations. This eight day festival is popularly known as Running of the Bulls, where tradition shows bull fighting is a form of entertainment. San Fermin is held in the city of Pamplona, which has a deep religious and historic nature. Ernest Hemingway was known to make this festival popular from his novel, “The Sun Also Rises.”

Schipper began work on a documentary last year that will be released sometime this Fall. Check out Schipper’s Instagram for updates. Check out Matt’s Facebook page for a video.
