Youths pelt each other with tomatoes during the Tomatina festival in Bunol, Spain, Wednesday. Some 30,000 people turned more than 100 tons of tomatoes into pulp during the annual event. The festival is said to have begun in 1945 during a village fiesta when someone threw a tomato at a couple of musicians who were taking a break. A tomato fight spontaneously erupted. It later became an annual fiesta with townspeople bringing their own tomatoes to throw. Today, the town supplies the tomatoes. "The tomatina is meant to come and enjoy," said a local who came equipped with goggles to protect his eyes from the sting of the tomato juice.
