The “La Tomatina” tomato fight in Spain happens every year on the last Wednesday
of August. It’s the biggest food fight in the world. Every year around 30,000 people
come to the small town of Bunol in east Spain to throw more than 240,000 pounds of
tomatoes at each other.
The festival starts with a ham-on-a-stick contest in which people race up a pole to
get a piece of ham on top of it. When the ham is cut down, people cry for tomatoes as
trucks dump thousands of tomatoes onto the streets. They then throw the tomatoes at
each other until all have been used up. The whole town is drowned in joy and the juicy-
red ocean of tomatoes.
