The “Tomatina” returns to Spain, the event where people throw tomatoes at each other for fun

People from all over the world threw tomatoes at each other as Spain’s famous “Tomatina” took place on Wednesday, for the first time after a two-year suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

truck workers unloaded 130 tons of overripe tomatoes of ripe ones in the main street of Buñol for the participants to use as projectiles, leaving the area drenched in red pulp.

It is estimated that some 20,000 people were going to participate in the festival, whose entry cost 12 euros. Crews of workers hosed down city streets and revelers showered minutes after the hour-long midday battle ended.

The event, held on the last Wednesday of August, was inspired by a food fight in 1945 between local children located in a tomato-producing region.

Media attention in the 1980s made it a national and international event, attracting participants from all corners of the world.
