Most people have been in pillow fights or water balloons fights with a small group of friends, but what about a tomato fight with roughly 30,000 other people?
La Tomatina is exactly that. Every year, on the last Wednesday in August, the world's largest tomato fight takes place in the town of Buñol, Spain. On the morning of the fight, dump trucks filled with tomatoes unload them onto the street for people to grab and throw. The fight begins at 11 a.m., after a cannon sounds, and the throwdown lasts for approximately one hour. The now-iconic event has taken place in this small Spanish town since it began in 1944.
