La Tomatina Tours

La Tomatina, based in the town of Buñol in Spain is the world’s largest food fight. Rumour has it that it all began in 1945 when some local teenagers, taking part in the traditional processions, decided to create their own fun within the parade. One of them took some tomatoes from a market stall and hurled them at the others, who reacted instantaneously, giving rise to an impulsive vegetable fight. A La Tomatina tour takes you to one of the more bizarre festivals of Spain where you can literally paint the town red - snatching, crushing and hurling tomatoes, until everyone is covered in the red pulp and flesh of the tomato.
