La Tomatina Fiesta 2005
The next Tomatina is August 28th 2013 (please check closer to date).
When & Where 11am usually on the last Wednesday in August in the village Bunol in the region of Valencia in Spain.
Why The tomato fight is the peak of the 11-day festival honouring the town's patron saints - Luis Bertran & Mare de Déu dels Desemparats. The tomato fight has taken place in Buñol since 1944. Its origins are clouded with legends.
Equipment for the Tomatina I would recommend wearing a snorkelling mask for best visibility, not goggles as they have more limited vision. If you want to take pictures get a waterproof camera, as everything in sight will be covered with tomatoes.
Getting There Book a flight into Valencia Airport here then take a bus or train to Bunol.
