Grand Rapids will have its own running of the bulls this weekend.
Instead of being chased by bulls like in Pamplona, Spain, however, participants will be chased by a mob of roller derby girls, dressed as bulls and on skates.
Participants will be encouraged to duck inside the bars on Ionia Avenue SW with specials offered by BarFly Ventures establishments and other businesses.
BarFly and the Grand Raggidy Roller Derby are putting on the event, which begins on Saturday at HopCat at 11 a.m.
Registration for the event begins at 10 a.m. and comes with a T-shirt and wristband, required for the discounts.
The “bulls” will stop running at 3 p.m. at Grand Rapids Brewing Co.
