One of the main activities Route 66 Idiomas offers its students is a trip to La Tomatina. It is the world´s biggest tomato fight. It takes place every year in Buñol, which is about 40 kilometers from Valencia, on the last Wednesday of August. This year it will be on August 29th.
The history behind this event goes way back to the year 1945, when a group of people started randomly throwing tomatoes at each other on the last Wednesday in August. Over the years it became a real tradition and nowadays every year thousands of people come from all over the world to participate to the festival.
When going to the event, it is advisable to wear comfortable, firm shoes because it is very crowded. Also, you should not wear any clothes that you would like to wear again after La Tomatina because EVERYTHING will be covered in tomatoes.
If you want to join our trip to La Tomatina you can apply at the administration office, call to 963 427 368 or email firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 27th of August at 13:00.
