La Tomatina is a festival that is held in the Valencian town of Buñol, a town located in the East of Spain 30 kilometres from the Mediterranean, in which participants throw tomatoes and get involved in this tomato fight purely for entertainment purposes.
Since 1945 it has been held on the last Wednesday of August, during the week of festivities of Buñol and if you wish to know more about this messy affair, our local team is on hand to assist with all the details.
Usually, the fight lasts for about one hour, after which the town square is covered with tomato debris. Fire trucks then hose down the streets and participants often use hoses that locals provide to remove the tomatoes from their bodies. Some participants go to the “Los Peñones” pool to wash.
