We already have June but don’t worry. There are still some absolutely awesome worldwide Events taking place the upcoming months. I’ve listed my Top 5.
1. Spain (Bunol)- La Tomatina – August
La Tomatina is a food fight festival. It sounds kind of crazy right? It fact it is kind of crazy. Thousands of people are fighting against each others with tomatoes. More than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.
Every year on the last Wednesday in August this festival will honor of the town’s patron saint, San Luis Bertràn, and the Virgin Mary. It’s called the „world’s biggest food fight“.
