Last weekend’s tomato festival in Tikhvin

Russia copies 'Tomatina' Fest

With its roots in Valencia, Spain, the "Tomatina" festival took place in Russia for the first time this weekend in the town of Tikhvin, Leningrad region. Because what do you do with 20 tons of tomatoes and a very large space? You have a food fight, of course.

The "La Tomatina" festival first originated in Buñol, Valencia. The goal was the same here: For participants to throw tomatoes at each other, getting fully immersed in ripe red slush in the process, all in the name of good fun and entertainment.
