Hanning is a co-founder of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans: The Running of the Bulls in New Orleans... Modeled after the festival of San Fermin in Spain, ... the local event involves hundreds of people in white and red gathering at 8 a.m. to run through the streets of the French Quarter. But instead of running from bulls, they will be running from something equally fearsome: the Big Easy Rollergirls. Armed with foam-core bats and wearing horns on their helmets.
...
This year, the Big Easy Rollergirls will be assisted by "roller bulls" from derby teams from Houma, Baton Rouge, Jacksonville, Fla., and Houston.
"They've been instructed to hit hard, " O'Donnell said. "Every year people complain that they weren't hit hard enough."
