La Tomatina 2009


Missed this one yesterday, but the sleepy town of Bunol, Spain held the annual La Tomatina Festival (the last Wednesday of August each year) with 40,000 participants from all over the world descending on the small Valencian town.  The local town hall estimated that over 100 metric tons of rotten and over-ripe tomatoes were thrown.

NPR has a nice write up of the festival and the Red Net has an excellent photo series of yesterday’s events.
