Running of the Bull crowd

The annual Running of the Bull is one of Dewey Beach's best-known events, drawing crowds of people to participate in a Pamplona-inspired run and party.

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announced this week that motorists can expect delays and increased pedestrian activity on Saturday, June 25, on Route 1 northbound/southbound in Dewey Beach for the 25th Annual Running of the Bull. The festival will begin at The Starboard, 2009 Coastal Highway.

Route 1 northbound and southbound traffic will be stopped briefly at 1 p.m., as runners leave The Starboard. When the runners return, officials will hold them and have them cross with the pedestrian signal to help minimize further traffic disruption.
