Who wants to be an ingredient in the world's largest spaghetti bolognaise?
Or perhaps you want to spread yourself around like on a bruschetta?
In any case, it's going to get pulpy, saucy and it's going to be a hooty whale of a time. This is one of the 'must do' European festivals and definitely one of our faves.
We dig it so much because when we ain't hurling tomatoes at each other we're chilling by the pool, sunning on the beach, dancing up a storm in Valencia city, or losing our mind in fun related incidents in Ibiza…
The Tomatina festival itself is one morning of madness, tens of thousands of people in a town of many less, the streets are packed and the get even more so with the arrival of trucks carrying tomatoes, many tonnes of tomatoes.
Once we avoid getting squashed by the trucks the fight begins, and for the next little while we throw salad fruits to our hearts content at strangers, friends, locals and tourists alike. Once it's all said and done, we rinse off, and head out to continue partying.
It's so wonderful!
We truly love this time of year in Valencia, and make sure you have as much fun as is humanly possible. Who doesn't want a piece of that?
