Stories: La Tomatina

America's largest tomato fight!

Story Location: Reno, Nevada More stories in this location

Agricultural farming has revolutionized over the years, meaning we can produce vast quantities of crops, far more than we ever used to and far more than we can ever consume. This 'over production' is highlighted at La Tomatina.

Surplus tomatos from the state of California are put to good use at this charity event in Nevada. The Reno Tomatina has become an annual event, each year California donates some of its suplus tomato crop to the Tomatina, where for a small fee, people can throw them at each other.
