Go, Bulls! Go!

What if I told you that at 11 a.m. Saturday a selection of your fellow citizens plan to show up at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis to run with a herd of very alive bulls? They will place their bodies on the quarter-mile track to run in front of, behind, alongside and most likely underneath the hooves of large, cranky animals. Afterward the few who survive without broken legs, crushed ribs or worse plan to throw tomatoes at each other to celebrate the fact they will not spend the rest of their lives as vegetables. Oh, did I mention participation costs money? Tickets to run for your life start at $35. If you just want to throw tomatoes, it’ll cost you $25. More information is available at thegreatbullrun.com.
