Over 20,000 people came together in Spain Aug. 26 for the 70th Anniversary of the La Tomatina festival, which is basically just an event where they pelt each other with fruit.

Doesn't it sound fun!?

The festival, which takes place in Buñol, began in 1945 inspired by a food fight between children. Every year 175 tons of tomatoes are hurled at the faces of neighbors and loved ones.

Google even made a regional doodle about it:



And the pictures are just fantastic.

















The Guardian has some great footage of the food fight:



This is definitely going on our bucket list.
