2. San Fermin, Spain

Each year in July, people from around the world travel to Pamplona, Navarra, Spain to experience the week-long San Fermin celebration. Most people are familiar with the main event, the running of the bulls, but many don't realize this festival is a giant, seven-day party. A firecracker pops early in the morning, triggering the 900-yard dash with the bulls through the city streets. After the run, the city celebrates with a parade featuring people in massive 3-foot tall masks and giant figures as traditional music fills the air and parties continue throughout the week.
