“The Tomatina 2018”

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=»3.9″]

The Tomatina ​is one of the most popular and most visited Spanish festivals that’s known around the world. Do you want to throw tomatos and swim in a pool tomato juice? Then this is the festival for you and you can’t miss it! Every last Wednesday of August tonnes of tomatoes and tomato lovers from around the world get ready for the big battle!

​Your target can be anyone within reach, the main aim is to throw tomatoes at those around you. If you consider that over forty thousand people take part in this fun battle and the amount of amunition in the hundreds of tons of tomatoes, it’s easy to imagine what goes on in the streets in Buñol.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=»https://www.erasmusvalenciavip.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/la_tomatina_001.jpg» url_new_window=»on» align=»center» _builder_version=»3.9″]

​The signal of the beginning of the battle is a firecracker which is set off at 11:00h at Ayuntamiento. With this signal truckloads of tomatoes fill the streets and participants run under a rain of tomatoes and begin the tomato battle!

A little history:
​The first tomatatina was in 1945, 
​when the final festival of the summer in Buñol a group of youngsters who were either bored or wanted a new way to have fun and brought down one of the Giant figures in the parade. The guy who was dressed up as this figuredid not appreciate the joke and started the fight, and his friends quickly joined in. The fight took place near the vegetable stalls and tomatoes quickly beame the ammunition. The police broke up the fight and forced those involved to pay for the vegetables used, but exactly a year later the young people arrived at the same place again but with their own tomatoes. Gradually the tomato throwing became common throughout the city, and despite the disapproval from the police, more and more people took part. In 1950the local authorities had not prevented the Tomatina and started naming the day this. But the Spaniards were not restricted to onlythrowing tomatoes at each other, and sometimes the tomatoes hit influential people, which led to the prohibition of the festival in 1957. The frustrated Spaniards then held a Tomatina funeral, in which they took a huge coffin full of tomatoes through the streets ofthe city with a traditional funeral procession, even accompanied by an orchestra. Under the pressure from citizens, in 1959 the local authorities were forced to lift the ban and recognize as an officialfestival and so it became the Tomatina in Buñol.

​Participants from around the world, even Australians, Chinese and Japanese come together in this so called battlefield where no one is an ally! It’s everybody for themselves.

NO ALLIES! ALL AGAINST ALL!!

More than 40,000 people come to this, the mother of all battles, with 100,000 kg of tomatoes as ammunition and we’ll be right among it all! It’s true that this is the craziest festival in Spain…

We’ll leave Valencia on a private coach in the morning, we will drink sangria and we will be ready for the big battle!

Recommendations:

   -Bring old clothes (or a swimsuit) because they are going to be stained a little
-Bring closed shoes (no sandals or barefoot)
-Bring swimming glasses to keep the tomatoes out of your eyes (they are acid and sting a bit your eyes)
-Put your phone, your camera, etc in some plastic bags (more than one)
-Take nothing but the absolutely necessary and nothing of value or which can’t get wet.
-It is important to bring spare clothing, since you will not be able to get on the bus with clothes full of tomatoes. (The spare clothes and what you want can be stored on the bus).

-No need to bring tomatoes…here you have them!
-In all Buñol, you can find drinks and food stalls…plus music and party throughout the city.
