La Tomatina Festival 2011 // World’s Biggest Tomato Fight!

The La Tomatina festival, held each year on the last Wednesday of August – evolved from a street fight in the 1940s when a group of young men who wanted to participate in the “gigantes y cabezudos” parade used tomatoes from a vegetable stand as weapons.
