Chinese "La Tomatina"


China has an other "La Tomatina" on August 31 2014, in Shenyang, Liaoning Province. What is "La Tomatina"?

"La Tomatina" is a festival held in Buñol town, Valencia Province in which participants throw tomatoes and get involved in this tomato fight purely for fun. This festival started in 1945 and is held annual on the last Wednesday of August.

This is not the first time tomato fights have been seen in China. In October 2008, a theme park in Hunan Province held a several-day-long tomato fight, which was followed by a similar fight in Dongguan, Guangdong Province. In order to celebrate its second anniversary, a shopping center in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou Province, organized a tomato fight in 2009.
