La Tomatina

Our State Fair is a great state fair, but if it’s ever looking for a pick-me-up, a festival in Spain this week might provide some inspiration.

In just a few hours, the good people of Bunol, throw 150,000 tomatoes at each other as part of the La Tomatina festival.

We’d have to change it a bit. Instead of tomatoes, what would we use? Cheese curds? Walleye?

But maybe the people in Bunol are sitting at their computers now, looking at how we’re spending the week and wishing they were us.

    Throwing food at each other would never work here, my goodness gracious, what a waste of darn good home grown tomatoes. My word.

    Then perhaps we should use zucchini and summer squash, then.

    The BEST picture is the last one where the three guys are playing chess in the middle of the tomato fray. Haha. Priceless!

    Seems to me if you want to get away with murder, you might consider La Tomatina.
