Food Fight! Thousands take place in messy festival
San Diego, Ca (CNN) – It’s a California twist on a Spanish tradition. Saturday thousands of people headed to San Diego for a messy festival. Participants were all seeing red and were ready for a war…of sorts.
Participants used 46,000 pounds of tomatoes for the celebration. Don’t worry about wasting food though, the tomatoes used are past ripe and would otherwise be thrown away.
