Food Fight!

Want to know where the biggest food fight in the world akes place? It is in Spain! La Tomatina is a food fight festival that is held in August each year, in the town of Buñol. The courageous ones attempt to climb a greasy pole to retrieve the ham that is located at the top. Once someone has reached the top, the food fight begins. Participants throw tomatoes and get involved in this tomato fight purely for fun. Study in Spain to live a real adventure!
