15 of the Most Dangerous Festivals Around the World
La Tomatina, Spain
Bunol, a small town near Valencia, plays host to thousands each year on the last Wednesday of August.
About 10,000 kg of tomatoes are used in the world’s largest food fight which originated in 1940 as a result of a food fight between children. The event has over the years become a major tourist attraction in Spain.
Though the official rule states the tomatoes must be crushed before being hurled at others, few seem to follow it. One may get hurt in the process in absence of proper clothing and shoes.
