TOMATINA





La Tomatina is a food fight festival held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Buñol in the Valencia region of Spain. Tens of metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets in exactly one hour. The week-long festival features music, parades, dancing, and fireworks. ( Source: Wikipedia )



Found out about this when I read the news. It seems an orgy of mushy red were seen everywhere during the Tomatina festival on Wednesday (25 August 2010), where a bunch of revelers played with tomato pulp wildly!




This yearly food fight is now in it's 65th year. People enjoyed hurling ripe tomatoes at strangers because there will be truck loads of tomatoes used for this event to paint the town "naturally" RED. Well of course you can expect to throw away your clothes after attending this event. =P

Such messiness! The town will be left awash in a sea of tomato pulp after the bloodless battle. I wonder how are the people gonna clean up the town areas after this festival. It sure is one hell of a job to do. -_-"





Crazy wan!



See how much the Spanish people enjoy this festival itself. My goodness. So much eatable food got wasted. -_-"
