Spain is known for crazy festivals, none more famous than La Tomatina.
Every Indian movie fan must be knowing about it from the movie Zindagi Na Milege Dobara.
The traditional roots may not go that deep(1945) but the festival has gained popularity over the years, as many as 40,000 people from around the world come to the town of Bunol just to pelt tomatoes at each other. As many as 1,50,000 tomatoes are used at that time.
All you worriers about the amount of wastage of tomatoes, hear - tomatoes are of low-quality, over-ride, and inferior in taste.
The problemo - Bunol is 7000 km from Delhi. So, not everyone can go there.
The problem period is over though- India is having it's own version of La Tomatina hosted by India Remix and what date would be more appropriate than the same date as Holi to celebrate a festival similar to Holi along with celebrating Holi. There is an accessible point to the Holi colours too.
