Portland Tomato Battle!

La Tomatina is the week long food fight festival in Bunol, Spain. Every year on the last Wednesday of August, the small town of Bunol, with a meager population of 9,000, graciously welcomes 20-40k people into their town for the largest tomato fight ever!  Catapulting tomatoes create chaos and pandemonium for exactly one hour.  At that point the water cannons sound indicating a cease in the food flinging.  Sounds like a rip-roaring,...
