Every last Wednesday of August thousands congregate to the small town of Buñol, Spain to participate in a massive food fight in celebration of absolutely nothing. La Tomatina is special in that it’s one of those rare holidays that has no religious significance — it’s throwing shit for the sake of throwing shit. It’s also special for the absolute madness and freedom that exudes from a town-wide fruit-flinging free-for-all. Whether you’re hungry, happy, sad, or needing to work out some aggression, the answer is La Tomatina. Taking part in a massive food fight with thousands of people from all over the world throwing around a 100,000 kilos of tomatoes is sure to fill that whatever-shaped void in your life.
And while the battle lasts just a couple hours, the party doesn’t stop once the last bit of tomato sludge is washed from your crevices. You can’t miss the official La Tomatina after party, and there’s no better way to prepare for the main event than by soaking your pores in fermented grapes at a water and wine fight in Requeña the night before. You want in on these festivities? Well there’s no greater option than Stoke Travel.
