La Tomatina is essentially a tomato throwing festival held every year in Spain. It is believed to be the world’s largest food festival and is held on the last Wednesday of August every year. The festival is held in the town of Bunol, situated 25 miles west of Valencia.
Thousands of revelers from Spain and other parts of the world participate in this fruit-flinging festival. More than 160 tonnes of over-ripe tomatoes are hurled, squished and splattered onto the streets of Bunol during the annual event.
This year La Tomatina festival is going to be held on Wednesday, August 28, 2019.
Trucks laden with over-ripe tomatoes will arrive at around 11 am in Plaza del Pueblo, the center of Bunol town, and offload the tomatoes in the streets. The hour-long brawl starts after water cannons are fired into the air. The festival traditionally starts after someone climbs on top of a two-storey high, greased-up wooden pole in order to reach the coveted ham at the top. The fighting ends after one hour and no more tomatoes are to be thrown. The cleaning process with the help of fire engines hose starts after the revelers have finally cleared the streets.
