PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED!!!!
The Spanish Tomatina festival happens each year in Bunol, Spain. Thousands of people pack the streets of the small town and hurl tomatoes at each other. The result is a cross between The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and an explosion in a Dominos Pizza shop. We’ve always wanted to go, but it’s really not practical with kids. So this weekend’s first London Tomatina in Victoria Park might be the ideal compromise. We have no idea how many people might turn up (the instructions are to meet at the Royal Gate at 5pm with a load of red ammunition), but it should be a sticky, squishy riot. You can go along as a spectator, but we think joining in will be more fun. More here
