“It’s like a tomato war” – Colombia town turns red in food fight

A vast crowd of locals and tourists pelted each other with tomatoes in a traditional ‘tomatina’ that left the Colombian town of Sutamarchan awash in red pulp. The crowd sprinted to a huge pile of tomatoes in the middle of a field and white t-shirts turned red as the food flew through the air. This area two hours north of the capital city of Bogota is well-known for its tomatoes and the tomatina is part of a weekend cultural festival that marks the end of harvest in the agricultural region. Event organizer Heyner Suarez said that the tomatoes used in the fight are leftovers from cultivation and not fit for human consumption.
