Celebrate the medieval festival of San Fermin and the running of the bulls at Sangria in Dallas with 50 cent sangria, numerous tapas specials and LIVE music all day, 11am to 11pm Wednesday, July 6, 2011.
Stop in at Sangria to hear Flamenco guitarist John Goode followed later by two Late Night DJ’s. The San Fermin Festival commemorates the 4th century martyr, Saint Fermin, who was the son of a Roman senator and who later converted to Christianity in Navarre Spain in 303 AD. After becoming a Catholic priest, St. Fermin became the first archbishop of Pamplona.
It is believed that he was dragged to his death through the streets of Pamplona by the bulls which many now believe was the root of the annual running of the bulls.
These events were central to the plot of The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway, which brought it to the general attention of English-speaking people. It has become probably the most internationally renowned fiesta in Spain. Over 1,000,000 people come to watch this festival.Sangria Tapas y Bar 4524 Cole Avenue near Knox Street 214-520-4863
