Ooh! Aah! Take the World and Paint it Red! Mumbai’s own version of ‘La Tomatina’
For all of you who are looking to do something crazy and fun this weekend, head to the the Tomatiya Festival, Mumbai’s own version of La Tomatina, the Spanish tomato fight festival!
The Tomatina festival is celebrated on the last Wednesday of August, every year in Bunol, a town in Spain. A festival for young and energetic people, La Tomatina has been celebrated for many years. The main reason any of us would want to celebrate this food festival is to enjoy ourselves, of course. Its like a pillow fight, but with tomatoes! Somehow there is a lot of pleasure derived from the simple act of throwing tomatoes at random people we don’t know.
If you have always wanted to be a part of this festive wastage of tomatoes, or have a sudden urge to thanks to Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, but may not make the trip to Spain anytime soon, just take a trip down to Juhu. This Sunday, 28th August, will see Hotel Tulip Star hosting what could possibly be the first of many Tomatiya festivals, Mumbai’s very own version of La Tomatina.
Beginning at 11am and concluding at 6pm, the day long festivities are expected to see the support of many well known names and faces who will attend the celebration. With unlimited food and liquor to be served and famous DJs set to play, the party is bound to create a big fun-filled mess at Hotel Tulip Star in Juhu.
