To many this may look like an absolute blood bath, but it is a lot more fun than that. This is actually the Tomatina festival held annually in the small town of Bunol, Spain and it is essentially the world's GREATEST FOOD FIGHT. La Tomatina originated from two individuals who wanted to protest political ideas which were counter to their beliefs, however, today is a more fun.
I personally have experienced the joy of being showered in the warm embrace of tomatoes. If you were wondering what the day at this festival looks like for a tourist ; you start the day extremely early (like around 4 or 5), get bussed to the town square (depending on where you are staying for us it was roughly an hour), drink your little butt off with other strangers every step of the way, The tomato trucks come in around 8 AM and after that ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE and you get to live your food fight dreams. After finish in the afternoon, get back on the bus laughing your ass off because of the most epic day ever.
Definitely Worth It!!!
