On August 25, more than 45,000 people from all over the world chucked tomatoes at each other in the name of tradition. The event was part of the 65th annual Tomatina festival, which takes place on the last Wednesday in August. Hosted by the village of Bunol, near Valencia, Spain, Tomatina honors the town's patron saints, St. Louis Bertrand and the Mare de Déu dels Desemparats. This year's squishy war set the world record for the largest tomato fight ever, with a total of 220,462 pounds of tomatoes having been used. What a mess!
