!viva San Fermín!! Gora San Fermín!! Long Live San Fermin!!!
Sanfermines 2015 officially began with the “Chupinazo” rocket exploding into fiesta at noon yesterday with a new mayor on the balcony, Joseba Asirón and a fifth flag, the Ikurriña, flying from the Town Hall.
The fuse of the rocket was lit by Javier Aranegi, representing the Orfeón Pamplonés and by Chantal Estrada, granddaughter of Honorino Arteta, who played the accordion in the Peña Velate – peña that helped to make popular our Sanfermín outfit of white and red.
