Get ready to the largest food fight with tomatoes!

The whole town will be covered with tomato debris, and almost everyone in the streets is wet with tomato pulps and seeds

I’m talking about the “LaTomatina” – the world’s largest food fight festival that takes place on last Wednesday of August every year in a small town called Bunol, situated in Spain, Valencia.

About

La Tomatina was started in the year 1945. Every last Wednesday of August, the city of Bunol is filled with 5 tons of surplus tomatoes in a dump truck.

The whole festival takes place for about an hour, within which the whole Bunol town turns red with tomato. Usually, it takes place between 11.00 AM and 1.00 PM, and there are some special rules to be safe.

This is not all, after the exhilarating experience of seeing the whole town in the theme of red tomato; you have more to see in the same night!

The town actually becomes cleaner than before once the La Tomatina is over and the debris of tomatoes is removed.
