La Tomatina

La Tomatina is the tomato fight festival held annually in the month of August. Thousands of people travel across the countries to be the part of this food fight in Bunol, Valencia, Spain.Over one hundred metric tonnes of over ripe tomatoes are spread on the streets.

The food fight does not start until someone brave enough climbs up the two storey long, high greased pole. The fight commences when one reaches the top and once water cannons are fired.

The event has some protocols such as one can’t bring hard and sharp objects in the fighting area. One must squeeze the tomatoes before throwing it.

Wear old clothes so that you may not regret throwing them off later.

Dates: last Wednesday of August
Venue: Bunol, Valencia, Spain.
