There's no denying that some events are just plain weird. One example is the annual Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Every year, participants brave the dangerous streets of Pamplona, trying to outrun a pack of angry bulls. The bulls are eventually corralled and killed in a bullfight, but not before they've caused numerous injuries (and even deaths). Another strange event is the Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea. Each year, visitors flock to the small town of Boryeong to enjoy a variety of mud-based activities, including mud wrestling and mud sliding. The festival also features live music and other entertainment, making it a truly unique experience. So next time you're looking for something fun (and maybe even a little bit strange), consider attending one of these bizarre events.
