La Tomatina is a festival that happens every year in August in a small town in eastern Spain called Bunol.
The tomato throwing lasts for about two hours.
It takes place on the last Wednesday in August usually between 11 am and 2 pm.
The tomato throwing takes place on the streets of Plaza del Pueblo.
Approximately 125,000 kilograms of tomatoes are used during the event.
In a short period the streets are filled with thousands of people all ready to splatter each other with thousands of tomatoes.
A siren signals the end of the event and immediately after the streets are cleaned using water that is pumped from a Roman aqueduct, and by the end of the day the streets are completely clean.
The festival includes fireworks, music, dancing and of course a lot of paella.
