In the world there are a lot of interesting holidays and I want you to meet them.
Recently, on August 25, was the Tomatina . Very interesting event!
Another name for the holiday — battle of the tomatoes (La Batalla del Tomate).
In the last week of August in Buñol (Bunol), in the East of Spain, begins the annual “Tomato festival” dedicated to the departing flight. Like all Spanish festivals, this goes with festive fireworks, music, dancing and free refreshments. But tomato festival there is one distinctive feature that attracts in Bunyola crowds of tourists, this is the culmination of the festival Tomatina tomato fight (La Tomatina), held in the town square.
The signal for the beginning of the battle is a special firecracker launched on Wednesday at 11 am from the city hall. At this signal on the streets there are several trucks loaded with the protagonists of the festival, ripe tomatoes, which are the missiles. Participants of the festival (and this whole town of Buñol), ran under a hail of tomatoes to the cars, grab the shells and fun avenge those who ran to the truck first.

If you planned a festive event, we cannot do without the game program. Games and contests at the festival – perhaps the most vivid and memorable moments because they create a relaxed atmosphere and good mood. There are so many different types of contests – drinking, moving, intelligent, playful, fun, music, attention, or intelligence…. Importantly, the guests were fun, interesting, regardless of the status of winner or loser. Much depends on the lead – as he will be able to cheer the underdog, to instill a desire to participate in other contests and enjoy the game. Prizes – the winner and just for participating can be very different – from a bottle of champagne to photo hero for the day with an autograph and a dedication that is important, not the cost of the gift, but how it is presented, the light bulb, for example, or a candle can proudly bear the title “lighting device”, and key “accessory for the car.” About the contests you can speak, but it is better to participate in them.
