La tomatina 2011

Every year on the very last Wednesday in the month of August theres something epic goes down in the town of Valencia in Spain.

A huge tomato fight where people come from all over the world to participate. This year an estimated 40,000 peeps came to participate.
Supposedly originating in the 1940’s as street fight turned into food fight the festival was initially banned until 1950 and then re banned again in 1957 until 1959
The tomatoes are shipped in from a town specifically for this event and are given out to participants by the truckload.

I just added something to my bucketlist haha
