Arles Bullfight schedule

I am going to be in Arles on Friday, April 10th (Easter weekend)and wanted to catch a bullfight in the Arles arena. I am trying to find out which type of fight it is going to be (bloody or cocarde, with ribbon). I know that they have Spanish style fights during the Easter holiday, but I cannot find a schedule that is clear on weekend events. Several events are listed as free in Arles that weekend, does anyone know which events? Thanks

If in the schedule you see the word corrida , this indicates a Spanish style bullfight in which the matador will kill the bull in front of you. The kind of bull "fight" they have most of the year, in Arles, is the Provencal bull game, in which the bull dies (eventually) of old age.
