Photos: The Festival of San Fermin 2013

Every year, the Festival of San Fermin, including the "Running of the Bulls", attracts thousands of visitors to Pamplona, Spain. Lasting nine days, the festival kicks off with massive crowds at the Chupinazo in Pamplona town square, followed by a carnival, fireworks, the running of the bulls, and many bullfights.

Collected here are scenes from this year's Festival of San Fermin.
