Revellers are soaked with water poured from balconies as they celebrate the Chupinazo (start rocket) to mark the kickoff at noon sharp of the San Fermin Festival, in front of the Town Hall of Pamplona, northern Spain, on Thursday. A red-and-white sea of revellers soaked each other with wine in a packed Pamplona square today to kick off Spain’s most famous fiesta, the San Fermin bull-running festival. — AFP
