Bulls in the Streets

Bulls in the Streets, a premier event for downtown Monroe, will bring the spirit of Spain’s Running of the Bulls to participants and spectators alike on June 9th - but with a jovial twist. Roller derby girls donning bull horns and armed with wiffle-ball bats will skate on the heels of those willing to run, crawl or walk to the one-mile finish-line. While the winner gets a trophy, the real draw for many will be the laughs and stories along the route as the roller girls "attack" runners with their bats. This thrilling fun-run event will benefit the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum and Monroe's own Roe City Rollers roller derby team. The race begins at noon, but families can line the streets for the spectacle and enjoy various activities leading up to the charge, including food trucks, live music, and bouncy houses for children. Flying Tiger Brewery will act as the "bull-pen" or hub for the festivities, while serving up brews for all to enjoy. Just like the original event in San Fermin, race participants must wear a white shirt and the red bandana (received during registration) around their neck. Participation begins at only $5.00. At the $5.00 level, participants receive the screen-printed scarf worn during the race. A participant at the $15.00 level receives the scarf and an event t-shirt designed by artist Jason Byron Nelson. Children 10 years old and under are free and must use the sidewalk. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. in front of Flying Tiger Brewery located at 506 N. 2nd Street in Monroe.
