In a 40,000-person food fight, everybody wins8/30/2012
More than 40,000 fighters gathered in the Plaza Mayor in Bunol, Spain, to throw 120 tons of squishy tomatoes at one another for the city’s annual food-fighting battle royale, La Tomatina. Five trucks brought the ammunition to turn the square into a saucy red foam party. La Tomatina has been going on since 1945, and legend has it the tradition grew from a food fight among a group of childhood friends. Now thousands of fans — many with "Fanatic of the Tomatina" T-shirts — flock from all over the world to pelt each other with tomatoes and then wash off in a nearby river. Click through the photo gallery, and decide for yourself: Doesn't this sound a lot more fun and chill than running with the bulls? [Source]
