Ernest Hemingway look-alikes push fake bulls on Duval Street during the "Running of the Bulls," Saturday, July 21, 2012, in Key West, Fla. The event is a spoof of its namesake challege in Pamplona, Spain, and is a facet of the island's annual Hemingway Days festival that concludes Sunday, July 22.
White-bearded men lined the streets of Key West Saturday for the annual “Running of the Bulls,” part of the Hemingway Days festival.
The shorter spin-off of the Pamplona run was just part of Saturday’s events, the Florida Keys News Bureau reported.
About 140 stocky men entered in the Ernest Hemingway look-alike contest, a number that was reduced to 25 on Saturday. The rest of the competitors wills vie for the title to “papa” in the final round of the contest.
Hemingway, an American author who lived and wrote on the island, was also honored with a cake celebrating what would be his 113th birthday.
The festival concludes Sunday.
