La Tomatina in Amsterdam - level 2
The popular Spanish La Tomatina inspired a few young Dutch entrepreneurs. La Tomatina is a festival in which people throw tomatoes at each other.
The Dutch entrepreneurs organised a similar event in Amsterdam. The event is fun as well as useful. People who want to take part in the event must pay €15. This money goes to Dutch farmers who have a big problem because they cannot deliver their products to Russia.
Around 2,000 people gathered at Amsterdam’s main square to support the farmers.
Difficult words: entrepreneur (person who sets up a business), gather (meet).
