La Tomatina: The World's Largest Tomato Fight

Updated on May 15, 2013

The World's Largest Tomato Fight

Each year in Bunol, Spain (in the Valencia region) the world's largest tomato fight commences. La Tomatina is the ultimate food fight. It is a festival for which people travel thousands of miles and all for the pleasure of pelting, and being pelted, by tomatoes. What a blast!

Of all the celebrations held across the world, la Tomatina is on the top of the list of events I hope to someday attend. It's on my bucket list.

      I already knew about this (included it as a joke on my tomato recipe lens) but your pictures and videos are excellent.

      I went to La Tomatina both in 2007 & 2008. It was great a long time dream come true, as I always wanted to go to Spain and especially to La Tomatina. I was not disappointed, my experience even exceeded, as I found myself immersed in the shirt ripping and throwing of both the shirts & the tomatoes. I took many photos of the 2008 event and have posted them on Flickr. I found this site through my stats page on Flickr as the photos above are from and link to my Flickr page.

      I took Ian Usher to the Tomatina last year. Who is Ian Usher, well he sold his life on ebay and now he is doing 100 Goals in 100 Weeks, Google it to find out more. Our pictures can be found here

      I hate to admit it, but that looks like a lot of fun! Get rid of tons of frustration pitching tomatoes, huh? Great lens idea!

      Ya know, they tried to do a rendition of this on the Amazing Race when they went through Spain a couple of seasons ago. It was not a pretty sight. Much whining and yelling and frustration that just made for disgusting watching. The people on your page look like they're having way more fun than they were on TV.
