July 14, 2012 – Food Fight, Festivities and Fun!
Get ready San Diego…the Tomato Battle is on!
The Tomato Battle unifies as many as 5,000 fruit-chucking fanatics for an afternoon of dancing to music, sipping libations, and flinging 300,000 pounds of roma tomatoes at one another!
Mosh in a ketchup-covered fray that marries the traditions of Spain’s La Tomatina tomato-throwing festival and Germany’s Oktoberfest. Festivities commence at noon with registration, followed by live entertainment and a costume contest. At 4:00 pm, soldiers donning bathing suits, safety goggles, and well-treaded shoes converge on piles of past-ripe tomatoes and set about pelting fellow tomato warriors!
Beats and beer flow until 6:00 pm, when ruddy troops lay down their arms and rinse themselves clean of pulp and juice. An extra set of clothes is highly recommended.
All of the tomatoes used during the exhibition will have been previously marked for disposal, making the Tomato Battle an efficient and entertaining use of non-edible waste.
Visit the Tomato Battle website for more information and to purchase your ticket to this one of a kind event. You must be at least 15 years of age to participate. Other restrictions and rules apply; check website for details.
Enjoy, San Diego!
