Spain’s Most Excellent Tomato Fight (This Month!)

There is no better festival on the entire face of this planet than La Tomatina.

Sure, that’s my own personal opinion, but until a pie throwing festival comes along, La Tomatina will continue to be numero uno in my book. Part of the reason I love it so much is because of the pure simplicity of the event:

1. Provide 110 tons of tomatoes to a drunken crowd
2. Sound a horn
3. Let them throw tomatoes at each other for an hour

Can life get any better than this? I think not.

Just click on the video above and I think you’ll agree with me. Or better yet, jump on a plane and head on over to Buñol, Spain. This year’s tomato throwing festival occurs on August 29; you’ve still plenty of time to make it!
