Good choice that you’re coming with Stoke to La Tomatina! Well done you.
Get ready for a festival where we throw, uh, lots and lots of tomatoes. Think back to the humble village where people have been growing the tomatoes all year, watering them, nurturing them, using their hoes to plow, oh so many
Did you know that the tomato isn’t even a vegetable? It’s a fruit. Which basically means you’re about to enter in the worlds fruitiest food fight. Juicy.
Around the world there are about 7500 different types of tomatoes, and La Tomatina involves the best kinds; saggy, old ones. (Not too often you'd say that).
What do I need to know about getting involved in this food fight of epic proportions?
