Spanish tomato fest pictures

Dear readers, I have attached several pictures of Spanish tomato festival. More than 40,000 people from all over the world gathered on Aug 25 and pelted each other with tonnes of tomatoes in a mushy festival in the eastern town of Bunol, 40km north of the coastal city of Valencia, Spain. Tomatina, the 1 hour bloodless battle converted the town in a sea of tomato pulp. The town council brought in over 100 tonnes of ripe tomatoes for the 60-year-old annual festival.
