Now, if you're not a fan of tomatoes, probably best to look away now.

Yeah, thousands of people pelted each other with 130 tons of tomatoes at the traditional tomato throwing festival in the Spanish town of Bunol.

"This is amazing..."

Around 20,000 people took part in the hour-long street fight known as the 'Tomatina.’

However, the Spanish sun didn't make an appearance and this year's revelers retreated to heavy rain instead. Organisers said that people from around 60 countries took part in the fights.

Yeah, that's gonna be one big clean-up operation.

Difficult words: pelt (throw), take part (do something), appearance (didn't show itself), retreat (get away from something).
