Every August, some 20,000 tourists flock to the town of Bunol (in the Valencia region of Spain) to hurl large, red squishy tomatoes at one another.

La Tomatina – the world’s largest vegetable fight – is a full blown fiesta and in the week building up to the battle, Bunol is filled with fireworks, food, street parades and parties.

However the undisputed highlight of the festival is the tomato fight which takes place between 11am and 1pm on the last Wednesday in August.

It’s estimated that approximately 90,000 pounds of tomatoes are pelted at people, so expect to see streets awash in seeds, pulp and tomato guts! After the food fight, revellers get to hose themselves down in one of the public showers that are especially constructed for the annual event.
