On the last Wednesday in August every year, the sleepy town of Buñol, Spain, celebrates La Tomatina. This wild festival is one of the largest food fi ghts in the world. Huge crowds of people come to throw thousands of tomatoes at each other—for fun!
La Tomatina has been a tradition in Buñol since around 1945, though no one is quite sure how it began. There are many different theories. Some people think it started after people threw tomatoes at a bad musician as a joke. Others believe it began after a bunch of tomatoes spilled out of a truck.

每年八月的最後一個禮拜三,位於西班牙這座寂靜的布尼奧爾小鎮會慶祝「番茄節」(也稱為「番茄大戰」)。這個瘋狂節慶是世界上最盛大的食物大戰之一。聚集到這裡的廣大群眾互丟幾千顆的番茄 —— 就是為了好玩而已!
雖然沒有人能確定番茄大戰是怎麼開始的,但它大約從 1945 年起就一直是布尼奧爾小鎮的傳統。關於這點有許多不同的說法。有人認為這是在人們開玩笑地把番茄扔向一位差勁的音樂家之後開始的。而有人則認為這始於一堆番茄溢出卡車之後。
