La Tomatina is one of the best events in Spain. There is nothing else quite like it and is some of the best entertainment in Spain. A huge tomato fight in the street with thousands of people involved.
 
 
 
Valencia
28th August
Always the last Wednesday in August.
 
 
 
Possibly the most famous weird event in Spain occurs on the last Wednesday in August every year when tons of tomatoes are dumped in the street for participants to throw at each other. A huge tomato fight in the street in the little town of Brunol just outside Valencia. The Cheste F1 circuit is also in this town.
It is said that t he event remembers a day in 1945 when children had a tomato battle in the street and the grown ups who needed cheering after years of war and hardship thought it seemed like good fun. Every year since thousands of red, slimy people agree with them.
There is a whole week of festivities surrounding the big day.

 


 
The day starts at 9am in the town square when food is provided, rolls and pastries for all.
The event is started at about 11 am when a large ham is placed at the top of a greasy pole, local heroes fight to the one to get the ham so that the tomato battle can begin.
The weeklong festival features music, parades, dancing, and fireworks and  on the night before the tomato fight, there is a paella cook-off.

he Tomatina began in 1945. During the huge battle, which starts and ends with a gun shot, the participants hurl tomatoes at each other. In the end, the traditional hosing down of the plaza and the participants takes place.

This odd event has attracted the attention of media professionals from all over the world, who come to Buñol to experience for themselves and report on to people in their respective countries. In August 2002, this event was declared a Festivity of International Tourist Interest.

IF YOU ARE COMING TO PARTICIPATE, OBSERVE THE RULES

These sense of civic responsibility and cohabitation rules are necessary to carry the event out every year, so there will not be any incident:
You must not take any bottles nor any kind of object that could cause any incident.
You must not break T-shirts.
Tomatoes will be squashed before they will be thrown in order not to hurt any person.
Be careful with lorries going through the village.
When the second incendiary device will be fired, tomatoes will stop being thrown.

Try to have as much fun as you can but observe the rules and respect the people. There has not been any incident during “La Tomatina” and we would like to keep it that way so people could enjoy.
