Initial comments with no section[edit]

Why remove the sentence about the parody with the bus at the end of the festival? - David Stewart 03:25 23 Jun 2003 (UTC)

RESPECT! 10 Billster 13:53 19 July 2005

The fiestas of San Fermin however, does not only consist of the people running infront of the bulls, but there are plenty more events which attract many people. One of these events is known as the "charangas" which is when several groups of music leave everyday at six o clock from the bull ring and parade down the streets of Pamplona,they are followed by people dancing behind them,(anyone is welcome to join). San Fermin in general is a non stop of events from the fireworks display which goes on everyday at 11pm, to one of the biggest fairs in Europe, and the many concerts of different type of music which are played everyday in the city.

The real danger[edit]

The encierro begins...The event is dangerous. Since 1924, 15[1] people have been killed

The provided source says nothing about the people killed.

This one does: [1]

And also points to the real danger in that debauched revelrie that Sanfermines are: Falling from the wall of Pamplona.

  • "Un hombre joven sin identificar falleció el domingo al precipitarse al vacío desde una muralla de 30 metros de altura que rodea el casco viejo de Pamplona...En las fiestas de San Fermín de 2007, un joven estadounidense y su pareja española perdieron la vida en la misma zona, cuando se precipitaron accidentalmente al río desde la parte amurallada de la ciudad."

Three deaths in two years in a row from drunkards falling from the wall (Pamplona was a fortress, and most of the walls remain).

I can remember several other similar deaths (a girl drowning in the Arga river after falling, another drunkard falling to death...) in 2005 and in previous years, but I can not find an online reference.

The real danger are not the bulls, but the mix of a high wall and drunk people fooling around, unable in their alcoholic stupor to see the danger.

  • "Todo el mundo está borracho"..."Everyone is drunk"

...of course they are. Many locals leave the city during the Sanfermines. I understand them very well. Randroide (talk) 08:51, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

The source. 6 dead in 12 years falling drunkard/drugged from the City Wall [2] Randroide (talk) 10:32, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Only 1000 people attend?[edit]

That doesn't seem like a lot. Of course, I have never attended. Is that number a mistake? Vorenus (talk) 17:42, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Who wrote this?[edit]

They really need to check their facts- and the "song " is completely wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gsaindon (talkcontribs) 22:13, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Song[edit]

The song is:[3][4]

Uno de enero, dos de febrero,
tres de marzo, cuatro de abril,
cinco de mayo, seis de junio,
siete de julio, ¡SAN FERMÍN!
A Pamplona hemos de ir,
con una media, con una media
a pamplona hemos de ir
con una media y un calcetín.

Old times section - who wrote this?[edit]

The whole "Old times" section feels really un-encyclopedic, and all its points are missing citations. NigeriaNoKamisama (talk) 16:43, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
