Spain’s annual tomato fight
Mandy sez, “photo gallery of a massive tomato fight held every year in Buñol, Spain. It lasts for exactly one hour on the last day of August every year, from 11-noon. Giant trucks of tomatoes come through the streets, they give you goggles, and then everyone starts pelting anyone they can with tomatoes. My friend went there this year and said it was incredible.” Link (Thanks, Mandy!)
