Tomato Festival-Giant Food Fight

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities” Dr. Suess

  Sometimes you just have to check it out when you hear about 30,000 pounds of slightly rotten tomatoes with over 1000 people signed up to throw them at each other. It was in the high 90’s, mud everywhere (I did lose my shoes in the mud) and the smell of tomatoes was a bit overwhelming. They started out dumping them in the “fighting area”, driving over them (so that no one was getting hit with whole tomatoes) and then the free for all began! After the tomatoes were all thrown and everyone was covered in goo they went over to be sprayed off.  While that also seemed like a good idea it added to the mud and a whole other level of mess! It was gruesome in a completely wonderful way! I only got hit once. I think next time I want underwater housing so I can be right in the middle of it all.
