La Tomatina – Tomato Festival, Bunol

The Tomatina festival in one of the  most unique and fun in Spain, held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Bunol,  Valencia.

La Tomatina has to be the biggest food fight you will ever take part in. This is where hundreds of tons of overripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets by thousands of festival goers.  It is typically a tomato war using ripe squashed tomatoes hurled between participants leaving everyone dripping with bright red sweet smelling tomato juice.

There are no winners just people having fun and enjoying being part of this unusual Spanish festival.  Your task is grab ripe tomatoes and throw them at other revelers.  There are a few rules though, the main one being that you have to squash the tomatoes in your hands before you can throwing them.
