Madrid: The La tomatina 2014 festival celebrated in Spain with gaiety and enthusiasm.
The tomato throwing event is a famous as well as attractive cultural celebration in Spain.
This is nothing but a food festival organized on the last Wednesday during the month of August.
In Spain, this festival is usually celebrated in the town of Bunol near to Valencia.
Thousands of people from all parts of the globe come to this city for participating in the World’s biggest food throwing fight.
During the event more than one hundred metric tons of fully ripened tomatoes are pierced by throwing them in the streets.
