Spanish Club Tomatina


In 1945 Spain, someone fell from a parade float and, in anger, began throwing tomatoes at bystanders. This is the condensed version of the history of Tomatina, but I think it’s sufficient. Since then, ‘La Tomatina’ has become a yearly festival held in Buñol, Spain, where people pelt one another with tomatoes for however long they want, covering the streets and themselves in a goopy tomato mess. Spanish Club decided to bring this event to OU, though we used water balloons instead. 😉 A handful of people came out to participate, but because of the time of day, it ended up becoming more of a water balloon fight for the officers, which was still fun, and I targeted a few pedestrians as they went to class.
