PHOTOS: Key West's Ridiculous, Hilarious Running of the Bulls

This weekend's Hemingway Days Festival highlighted the zany irreverence Florida's Key West — now home to marriage equality — is known for.

The event pays homage to legendary author Ernest Hemingway, author of classics like The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway wrote and lived in Key West in the 1930s, with his famous menagerie of cats. Part of the festival, now in its 34th year, features readings, a short story competition, a marlin tournament, and a "Papa" look-alike contest. As part of the festivities, the Papas recreate a fake take on the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, of which Hemingway once took part. See the bovine shenanigans below:
