A pistol shot is the starting signal of four days of merriment and fun. The first shot and the chiming of the church bells announce the start of the chúndara, an endless procession which makes its way to the Plaza del Coso, while the villagers throw buckets of water on the people below from their balconies. On arrival at the square, the young bulls are released. The bulls will be fought during the festival, and then on the last night served in a stew for all the villagers and guests.
