It’s the day you’ve been waiting for...La Tomatina! An early shuttle bus comes to collect you from the campsite and heads to where the madness will take place, Buñol. On the way, your Busabout guide will explain how such an incredible event came into existence. We arrive early so you can get your bearings and see the first event. This pre-event is pretty crazy itself! Locals and tourists clamber up a greasy poll, trying to reach the leg of Ham (jamon serrano) at the top. See them struggle, slip and slide, but believe us, that’s some good ham!
A shot is fired and the tomato-fight begins! Trucks make their way through windy streets dispersing thousands of overripe, big, fat tomatoes. For one hour, people throw 40 metric tons of tomatoes at each other, painting the town a lovely shade of red. Once it ends fire trucks clean the streets, and people hose each other down. Lots of water to wash lots of tomato pulp. Once thoroughly hosed down we all head back to Valencia, where you will be thankful to get into some clean clothes again.
Tonight we party in Valencia. It’s a huge post-Tomatina party. So we let loose and party until sunrise.(B)
