It’s time for one of our most exciting and laughter filled events of the year. Inspired by the Running of the Bulls events that takes place in Spain, Portugal, and some parts of Mexico where festival goers run with the bulls, the ROLLING of the Bulls in Hampton will feature participants running from Dominion Roller Derby Girls and other local leagues armed with horns and wiffle bats.
The event begins with the Blessing of the Bulls and then the .5 mile run starts. Each runner MUST wear white with (so the girls know exactly who to hit!) and creativity is highly suggested. Stick around after the event and enjoy the Hampton Block party and you’ll even see us working the beer tents!
