Each year in the small Spanish town of Bunyol, on the last Wednesday in August, the world's largest tomato fight takes place.
Begun in 1945, some 250,000 pounds of tomatoes are smashed, trashed and tossed about. You can read more about it here.
So, I'm just thinking, do you think we could up the tourism in Ripley this way? But wouldn't it be a shame to waste all those tomatoes, which I find better than usual this year, by the way.
