The Tomatina is the famous 'tomato-throwing' festival, held every year in the last week of August in Buñol, a town in the north of the Valencian community. Well, this isn't the Tomatina. In fact I don't think it's anything special at all, just the annual festival (fiesta) of another small town in the Valencian community (Alcocebre) which we happened to stumble upon.
Why were these people dressed as tomatoes? No idea. Perhaps just to have fun. And isn't that the best reason of all?
Ummm, mine's a Bloody Mary.
