Reciprocal , unadulterated tomato lobbing. That’s what you get if you visit Buñol near Valencia on the last Wednesday in August.
Partying begins earlier in the week until the tomato war begins at 11am and runs for the next three hours.
Combatants complain of an enduring tomatoey taste, and of finding bits of red vegetable fruit in unfortunate places during the following few weeks, but all seem to agree that it’s all worth it.
Here’s a nice little documentary that gives a good insight into the whole Buñol Tomato Fight event.
