Amadores de Turlock

These are bloodless bullfights (also known as Portuguese tourada, corrida de touros or tauromaquia). Here you see the Cavaleiro using a banderilla, a long spear, with tassles or some kind of a decoration around it, to stab the velcro pad affixed to the bull's shoulders, instead off actually stabbing the bull.
