Tomatina – or tomato fight – is an annual brawl held in Spain.  120 tons of tomatoes are thrown around as people celebrate, something.  According to the article no one knows what they are celebrating.

The origin of the tomato fight is disputed — everyone in Bunol seems to have a favorite story — but most agree it started around 1940, in the early years of Gen. Francisco Franco’s dictatorship.
