“Is this one a reach?” I asked myself as I scrawled it down on this list. No, it’s not; I later decided. Possibly the most puzzling on the list and definitely the messiest, La Tomatina Festival is Spain’s favorite way of having a food fight. This festival in Valencia is pretty simple: It’s a massive tomato-fueled extravaganza purely for the sake of entertainment. A glimpse at the photos and videos from past events shows just how riotous it gets, presumably leading folks to take a break from the red fruit afterwards.
