Hello! Today I am talking from one of the strangest
And funniest celebrations of Spain La Tomatina of Buñol The tomatina is celebrated every year the last Wednesday of August During the festivity for the patron saint. Buñol is a village near Valencia With less than 10.000 inhabitants But the festival is so famous in all the world
That up to 50.000 people attend it La tomatina starts at 10 a.m. with the Palo Jabón (soap pole) A pole full of grease with a ham at the top The people try to climb to get it and when
someone achieves to drop the ham from the pole The fight begins!!! The Young people of Buñol enter the square with trucks full of tomatoes And start to throw them to all the people creating
The world’s biggest food fight After exactly one hour, at eleven o’clock sharp
A shoot declares the end of the festival And everyone has to stop throwing tomatoes The streets are completely red for the tomatoes Thus the fire brigade’s trucks enter And wash with their hoses the streets of the village
And everyone who wants to be washed And in a short time Buñol is clean again! The festival is so funny that also many foreigners come here Do you also want to join? And now some advices and recommendations if you want to come to the party Wear clothes that you do not want to keep and that you can dump Squash the tomatoes before throwing them, to avoid hurting someone Wear protective googles Or something to dry your eyes, tomatoes are very acid! And above everything, throw only, only tomatoes no bottles or hard objects Nothing, only tomatoes Well guys, I wait for you here next year. See you soon!
