Two most colorful festivals

1 Jun

Are you ready to celebrate two most colorful festivals in the world:

  1. La Tomatina in Buñol, Spain celebrated during the last Wednesday in August.The world’s largest food fight. Each year some 30,000 people (including locals and many visitors) fill this town’s main square to hurl locally grown tomatoes at each other.  La Tomatina is a week-long festival featuring music, parades, dancing, fireworks, and a paella-cooking contest the night before the big fight.

Rules of the Fight:

A cannon is fired to signal the beginning and end of the tomato-throwing. According to the official La Tomatina website, there are just five rules:

  • You must not bring bottles or other objects that could cause an accident or injury.
  • You must not tear or throw t-shirts.
  • To avoid hurting people, you must squish tomatoes before they are thrown.
  • You must be careful around any trucks or vans.
  • After hearing the second shot, you must stop throwing tomatoes

Holi is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus. Holi is also called ‘The Festival of Colours’, and people celebrate the festival by smearing each other with paint, and throwing coloured powder and dye around in an atmosphere of great good humor.

Rules of the Fight:

No Rules, just have fun..
