These pictures are of the Tomatina Tomato Fight from August 30 2006. The action began at about 9am with the Greasy Pole Climb in which everyone tried to climb a greasy pole to reach a ham that was tied to the top. At 11am the tomato fight started, with truckload after truckload of tomatoes coming into the square. One of the silliest festivals in the world and probably one of the most fun.
When it was all over, the cleaning operation began. Check out the pictures of the Tomatina Aftermath.
