La Tomatina Festival
Keep your head down during Italy's La Tomatina Festival, the world's biggest tomato fight. Since 1950, this annual event has stained the city of Buñol red as locals and tourists alike pelt one another with truckloads of tomatoes that are brought into the city's central Plaza del Pueblo. By the end of the festivities, everyone is literally covered from head to foot and occassionally a bit worse for wear. You'd think that this would make a mess that would last for weeks, but amazingly the combination of fire hoses and the acidity of the tomatoes actually clean the cobblestones steets to a pristine finish. Talk about a festival where everyone benefits!
