Tomato Fight In Bunol Spain

La Tomatina in Bunol, Valencia is the largest food fight on the planet. Every year approximately 40,000 tomato enthusiasts turn up for the biggest tomato fight in the world. Five bulbous, tomato-packed rockets are sent whistling into the sky to start the festival of La Tomatina. The masses congregated below then launch into a one hour frenzy of tomato throwing - it's everyone for themselves. Tens of thousands of revellers from around the world pelted each other with tons of tomatoes Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2010, in this festival in the eastern Spanish town of Bunol. The town council brought in some 100 tons of ripe tomatoes on trucks for the estimated 40,000 tourists who descended on the town of just 9,000 inhabitants for the annual festival, which has taken place for more than 60 years.
