Running of the Bulls

Bulls raced through the streets of downtown Monroe on June 24, 2017 at the inaugural Bulls in the Streets event, presented by Flying Tiger Brewery. Participants donned all white and red handkerchiefs as they ran, walked and jogged the one mile route throughout the downtown area, chased by bat-wielding roller derby girls with horns. Several food trucks were on hand to provide nourishment for the runners after the race, while Flying Tiger Brewery offered cool refreshments inside the tap room. Proceeds from the event benefitted local non-profits, the Roe City Rollers and Chennault Aviation and Military Museum. Organizers are already planning and gearing up for next year, looking forward to making this an annual successful event.
