La Tomatina is a festival held on the last Wednesday of August at Buņol, Valencia, Spain.

Tens of thousands of participants come from all over the world, fight in a harmless battle where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.

The tomato fight has been a strong tradition in Buñol since the 1940s simply for fun - there is no known political or religious significance.
