Where: Buñol, Spain (near Valencia)
When: Last week of August
Why: Festival in honor of the town’s
patron saint
Nearly 120,000 kilograms of tomatoes are trucked in and dumped
on the streets for the event. At the end of the two hour battle,
the streets run red with tomato juice, skins, and seeds.
One good thing about this event is that everyone who participates
stays around afterwards to help clean up the mess. The town
also puts up makeshift public showers down by the river,
so people can wash up after the battle!
takes place every August in the town of Buñol, Spain.
The event is know locally as La Tomatina, and it marks the
culmination of a weeklong celebration with music, fireworks
and food in honor of Saint Louis. About twenty to thirty
thousand locals and visitors join in the event and hurl tomatoes
at each other.
