(CBS) — If you can’t get to Spain, the running of the bulls comes to the Chicago-area this Saturday, reports WBBM’s Regine Schlesinger.
It’s called The Great Bull Run and is modeled after the event in Pamplona, with some key differences. Co-founder Rob Dickens says it’s much safer.
“In Pamplona, you’re walled in by buildings. You get no escape route to get out of the way if you happen to get crushed by a lot of people and then, a bull is bearing down on you, as happened to the author from Chicago, you don’t have anywhere to go.”
