The Annual Fiesta de Aviles and the famous Running of The Bulls takes place Saturday December 10th, 2016.

The Running of the Bulls begins at 3 p.m., with a kids race at 3 and the race for adults at 3:30.

Everyone is invited to participate, and gift certificates are offered by the local shops for the winners.
