There are two big items on my wish list for Minnesota: (a) A Dunkin’ Doughnuts shop and (b) a good tomato fight. “A” isn’t going to happen; probably ever. “B” is.
Organizers in Hastings have announced they’re putting together a tomato festival, the highlight of which is a tomato fight modeled after a famous one in Spain. Twenty-thousand pounds of overripe tomatoes have already been ordered, the Hastings Star Gazette reports. They’ll be dumped in a pit at Afton Alps and then it’s every Minnesotan for him/herself.
It happens this Sunday. Tip: Bring goggles.
Who’d like to volunteer to send me some pictures and/or video for Monday morning?
