Plenty of “red faces” in Buñol

The annual tomato festival at Buñol took place on Wednesday. Since last year, the town has had to restrict the number of people taking part as they were growing out of hand. Even still, an estimated 20,000 joined the 9,000 inhabitants to throw 100 tonnes of tomatoes at each other.

In the afternoon, the fire brigade moved in to clean up the town. Apparently, the acidic juice of the tomatoes leaves the place spick and span.
