Mom always said you shouldn’t play with your food…unless, that is, you’re at La Tomatina, a saucy tomato-throwing event that takes place the last Wednesday in August. It’s coming up, so book that ticket to Spain and run naked in the red heirloom tomato river. A tradition since 1945, an estimated 30,000 descend on the tiny town of Buñol to join the world’s largest food fight! This giant tomato-tossing fiesta is part of a week long festival honoring their patron saint. Here are a few tips about participating in La Tomatina http://www.latomatina.org/tips/
