The expected return of the bulls to Gijón, after two years of ostracism by a cacicada, already has posters: El Juli will celebrate its 25th anniversary as an alternative with six bulls in El Bibio. It was the great news hidden in the posters for the new Begoña fair, received with real enthusiasm.
The combinations were announced at an event held on Tuesday, July 18, in Gijón, chaired and closed by the new mayoress of the Asturian capital, Carmen Moriyón, and moderated by the journalist from EL MUNDO, Zabala de la Serna. The teacher Emilio Muñoz was the “godfather” of the posters and the businessman Carlos Zuñiga (Bullfighting Circuits), who has worked all this time in the shadows so that the bulls could return to a bullring that is in perfect structural condition. Three weeks of work and it already looks like new.
The posters of the Begoña Fair 2023 are the following:
Tuesday, August 15. Mixed run. Two bulls from Romao Tenorio for rejones and four from Zacarías Moreno for the fight on foot. Pablo Hermoso de Mendoza, Diego Urdiales and the bullfighter Manuel Román.
Wednesday, August 16. Bulls from La Quinta, Garcigrande and Daniel Ruiz for El Juli as the only sword.
