Epic Wine Battle in Spain

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Blimey, now I'm certain that people is Spain really know how to have fun! Every single year at the end of August, a small town called Toro becomes a wine battle field. Yup, as part of the San Agustin festival, hundreds of locals dressed in white drench each other in red wine with water pistols, back-mounted spraying devices and buckets. To some it might look like a waste of wine, but to me it is just plain good fun. What do you think?

P.S: Also, the Pingxi sky lantern festival in Taiwan, the Azaleas festival in South Korea and the midsummer night celebration in Poland.
P.P.S: Office like no other.

To think we just have water fights.
Not sure I'd ever want to get doused in red wine, but these photos are spectacular.
Chic on the Cheap

Spain also has a tomato throwing festival, La Tomatina, in Bunol south of Valencia. It's the last Wednesday of August every year. I think wine would be a little easier on the skin--not as acidic as tomatoes!
