The Fireworks in Pamplona

A good and cheap way to have dinner in Pamplona during Running of the bulls is to buy a sandwich and something to drink and go to the Vuelta del Castillo Park to watch the fireworks.

Fireworks were first seen in Pamplona in 1595, and, since then, the fireworks have been an annual tradition of the San Fermín Festival.  However, it was not until 2000 when these fireworks came to celebrate the Sanfermines Fireworks International Competition held from July 6th to July 14th.

Every night, at 11:00 pm, thousands of people sit and look at the sky and see explosions of bright, colored light. This nightly half hour fireworks spectacle is an event you shouldn’t miss if you are in Pamplona during the Running of the Bulls!

The very best location to catch the show is from the grassy area just in front of the bus station at the Vuelta del Castillo Park.

We recommend arriving by 10:30pm find a good place to lie down and enjoy the show with friends, family or your significant other.

And… one more thing, don’t forget a something to sit on and a jacket. The grass can be wet and sometimes the nights in Pamplona could be a little cold.
