Tomato fight in Colombia - level 3, A12
Colombia has some prolific tomato growing regions. Too prolific, in fact, there is always a bit left over.
So, what do you do with all those fruits that get a bit bruised or overripe? Well, you could throw them at your neighbours, which is what the Tomatina festival around two hours north of a capital Bogota is all about.
18 tons on slightly rotting fruit, thousands of tomato covered revellers.
At 1, fire department tows.
