Anyone ever go to the tomato fight in Spain? I forget the city in which it takes place, but it sounds like a fun experience. I believe it is like the third week in August.

This year it takes place the last day in August (Typically the last wednesday of the month) in Bunol. I haven't been yet, I wanted desperately to go...but my planning made me cut Spain and save it for it's own separate trip. Seems like too much to try to cramp into a few days!

I have been to the tomato fight in bunol. And let me tell you it is amazing at that festival.

there is so many people there just to have a great time, that it is awesome.

the tomato fight is a really good time. Its one thing you really want to get to see at least one time.

I was there in 2002.
