TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California city has announced plans to host a Pamplona-style bull run, months after a neighboring town nixed the event because of safety concerns.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports the Golden State edition of the Great Bull Run will be held at the Temecula Downs Event Center on June 21.

The organizers held two bull runs last year in Virginia and Georgia.

The spectacles mirror the annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, where people run in front of a herd of toros let loose in the streets. Organizers say they toned down the U.S. versions by creating escape routes for runners and blunting the animal's horn tips.

In November officials spiked a planned bull run in Lake Elsinore, about 15 miles north of Temecula in Riverside County.
