La Tomatina in Colombia (also known as Gran Tomatina Colombiana) is an event that takes place since June 15, 2004, in the municipality of Sutamarchan, Boyaca.
La Tomatina is made with tomatoes not suitable for consumption – crop wastes. In the main activity participants throw tomatoes at each other, outside of this event they perform cultural shows, parties and competitions such as the “tomatoes eater”, the largest tomato, the heaviest, etc…
To participate you only have to bring a big smile and the official T-shirt of the event, which is just a white T-shirt, which allows the red spot of the tomato to stand out on the large crowd of national and foreign assistants.
