La Tomatina

The Tomato Fighting Festival of Spain
La Tomatina is a festival
that is held in the Buñol
town which is in Valencia,
Spain. People who join
the festival will be
throwing tomatoes and
get involved in the tomato
fight.
La Tomatina will be held on
the last Wednesday of
August, during the week of
Buñol festivities.
La Tomatina started in 1945, during the
parade of the “Little Rabbit”. Some
woodland animals were trying to eat
the watermelon, so the people at the
parade threw tomatoes at animals, one
missed and hit a person. Finally,
everybody was throwing tomatoes at
each other.
The following year the young
people repeated the fight on the
same Wednesday of August. This
time they brought their own
tomatoes from home. After
repeating this in subsequent years,
the tradition was established in
1950.
At 11 Am, the start signal will be
given by the firing water shot in the
air and the trucks make their
entry. After exactly one hour the fight
ends with the firing of the second
shot, announcing the end.
These are the rules of the festival
1. The tomatoes have to be
squashed before throwing to
avoid injuries.
2. Participants have to give way to
the truck and lorries.
3. No other projectiles except
tomatoes are allowed.
Vocabulary
Subsequent
= Coming later
Participant
= A person or group that participates
Projectile
= A throwing object in the air
Good Bye from La Tomatina 

Gracias!

Thank you!
