Warning: If you’re allergic to tomatoes, then this festival is not for you! La Tomatina is an exciting and characteristic event of the town of Buñol in Spain.

Sounds delicious, right?

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.
