Some believe it started as a juvenile class war, others see it as the anarchic aftermath of an accidental lorry spillage, but whatever the origin, La Tomatina is a food fighting festival you won’t want to miss!
And you don’t have to, because we’re offering you two nights’ camping and entry to La Tomatina Festival for only £149pp!
The closest we seem to get to food fights these days involve kebabs and drunken quarrels with lampposts. However, Valencians know how to do it properly, and we’re inviting you to get involved in the action! For two days in August, the town of Buñol becomes a sea of smiley revellers covered in red - the only place in the world where you can literally swim in tomatoes!
With today’s deal, you’ll stay for two nights in El Planell campsite, which is just 500m from La Tomatina - the only place this close to the festival! Tents and mats will be provided for you, and there are plenty of toilets and showering facilities on site to hose yourself down after all the festival frolics. There’s even a free bus which runs from the site to the local shops and restaurants in Buñol, so you can stock up on non-tomato based supplies for lunch and dinner.
When you arrive on Tuesday, you’ll have the day to do your own thing before the La Tomatina Sound Festival brings everyone alive at 12am. In typical Spanish fashion, you can party till the early hours of the morning! Wednesday begins at 9am when people descend on the central square and line their stomachs with rolls and pastries. Then a huge pole with a leg of ham on the end is erected and doused in soap - he who dares can attempt the climb, whilst those who don’t dare can delight in the slippery spectacle. Honk, honk! What’s that? That’s a truckload of tomato-based ammunition - it’s 11am, which means only one thing... TOMATO FIGHT! The chaos continues until the hoses come out, so remember to bring your waterproof camera. And the fun doesn’t stop there, as there’s more music until 3am!
