The bulls are meaner, quicker, and ready to DESTROY everything in its path!!!
During the run, I got sidetracked by free slurpees!! I couldn’t resist…it was 7/11!

I’ve been going to the Queen Anne Running of the Bulls now in its 6th year since its first run back in 2010! I’ve blog about here and here! If you’re ever in the Seattle area during the month of July, I highly recommend putting on a WHITE SHIRT, WHITE PANTS, and a RED SCARF and head on down to Paragon Bar in Queen Anne and get ready to RUN for your life!!!
We managed to sneak in a quick photo-op at Kerry Park for an Quinceañera event!!! Too freaken’ AWESOME!!!
I go every year as a spectator but this year I decided that I was going to bike the 3rd of a mile run – armed with squirt guns and water balloons. The run begins at 2 pm from Queen Anne’s Paragon Bar and Restaurant to the finish line at Kerry Park. There is a strict dress code – white shirt, white pants, red scarf, and fast shoes. Don’t forget a rolled up newspaper to swat the herd of shopping carts resembling bulls, each donning horns, nose rings, and a case of ice cold beers.
Special thanks to Jael for my awesome Japanese transportation!
Afterwards, we went to the Dragon Fest held at Chinatown and enjoyed some tasty food trucks, delicious sake, great company, and live music!
Today was another gorgeous day to be out and about. My friend Chris throws an event in Queen Anne similar to the Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls. It’s in its 4th year and I’ve never missed an event. Although I wasn’t able to participate in the run, I was able to stop by for the after party with my mom and dear friend Mel.
Afterwards we stopped by the Ballard Seafood Festival to enjoy some dungeness crab cakes, bacon wrap scallops, ice creams, and fresh strawberry lemonade. Yummy in my tummy!
