‘Word’s biggest food fight’: Spain’s famous tomato Tomatina festival is back

'Word's biggest food fight': Spain's famous tomato Tomatina festival is back. Workers on trucks unloaded 130 tons of over-ripe tomatoes along the main street of the eastern town of Bunol for participants to throw, leaving the area drenched in red pulp. Up to 20,000 people took part in the festival, paying 12 euros a ticket for the privilege. Local officials said they expected fewer foreign visitors this year mainly because of continuing fears over Covid-19 in Asian countries. But the streets were packed as thousands of bodies coated themselves and each other in red mush. The annual event held on the last Wednesday of August was inspired by a food fight between local children in 1945 in the town, located in a tomato-producing region. #tomato #tomatina #spain #bunol #DailyMail Original Article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11164749/Spains-famous-Tomatina-festival-returns-time-Covid.html Original Video: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-2762203/Video-20-000-people-enjoy-Spains-famous-Tomatina-festival.html Daily Mail Homepage: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/ Daily Mail Facebook: https://facebook.com/dailymail Daily Mail IG: https://instagram.com/dailymail Daily Mail Snap: https://www.snapchat.com/discover/Daily-Mail/8392137033 Daily Mail Twitter: https://twitter.com/MailOnline Daily Mail Pinterest: https://pinterest.co.uk/dailymail Get the free Daily Mail mobile app: https://dailymail.co.uk/mobile
