La Tomatina!

Thursday, September 1, 2011

Yahoo! Last Wednesday the adorable Spanish city of Buñol, Valencia celebrated their annual tomato throwing festival. It's one of those days that everyone looks forward to and this time a whopping 40000 people took part in the mushy celebrations! Fun fact: Due to the huge and increasing popularity, the local city council imports tomatoes from Extremadura where they are grown just for this occasion. Isn't that incredible? Darlings, have you ever taken part in Tomatina festival before? Would you? One thing for sure: I wouldn't wanna have tomato pasta the next day. xo

I've never heard of this but at first I was like "no! so weird!" But now I'm thinking it looks way fun and freeing, definitely good for the morale of a city.

Valencia is great for partying, but I prefer Fallas (every March). They say tomatoe is good for your skin, though :)

That looks so crazy and fun! Where I went to college we had an annual paint fight, but this would be much tastier.

I think it would be fun to watch, but I've heard it can actually hurt a bit to get pelted with tomatoes (in your eyes!).

Still funny though.

Diana Mieczan said...

Marta, that is a great tip. Thank you:) Im going to check out Fallas right now!

Diana Mieczan said...

Hahah...paint fight, sounds really awesome, M. Flynn and Melanie, the festival always takes place on the last Wednesday of August.

I can't believe this really goes on! So crazy/fun!

Lisa said...

It sure looks like fun, but what a waste of good food! Grow tomatoes just to throw them away? Hm... I'd still join if I had the opportunity, though :)
