Take 20,000 people, add 150,000 kilos of tomatoes, and this is what you get.
It's the famous 'Tomatina' festival, held in the Spanish town of Bunol on the third
Wednesday of August every year.
The massive food fight dates back to 1945, and an apparently spontaneuos bust-up between
villagers.
The festival was banned for a time during the 1950s at the height of General Franco's
dictatorship, but nowadays it draws a huge international crowd.
This reveller said "It was a pretty intense experience - tomato, war, madness, it was
out of control.
It was good, really fun.
It's my first time in the Tomatina and it was good, I will come back."
And he's not the only one; at it's peak, the 'Tomatina' attracted around 45,000 people,
though today it's a ticketed event with only 22,000 places.
This year's food fight was completely sold out, but just how many people will stick around
for clean-up is anyone's guess.
