One of favorite Spanish festivals La Tomatina takes place today, leaving the streets of an old and beautiful town of Buñol all covered with red mess!

La Tomatina is believed to be the biggest ‘food fight’ in the whole world! Thousands of people rush to the streets of Buñol, situated near Valencia in eastern Spain, and start smashing and throwing tomatoes for about an hour.

However, to join the annual celebration you have to pay entrance fee. And then let the bloody party started!

Seven trucks offloaded more than 175 tonnes of tomatoes onto the streets, which were totally overcrowded with people! The whole celebration looks like massive act of homicide, especially after the event when almost the whole town drowns in the red pulp.

When the celebration ends, all participant take public shower and then the cleaning part of the fest starts.

This annual event was inspired by 1945’s incident, when the local teenagers stated a food battle in one of the richest tomato regions.

This year it was 70th anniversary of La Tomatina and even Google decided to celebrate it creating a special Google Doodle, inspired by the event!
