Runners avoid whiffle ball bat-wielding bulls during El Encierro, the Running of the Bulls, at the 6th annual Festival of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans near the Convention Center on Saturday, July 13, 2013. Instead of actual bulls like in Pamplona, Spain, the bulls are roller derby leagues from around the country including the host league, the Big Easy Rollergirls.
