Aug. 24, 2010 - PRLog -- An event that is famous the world over sees hundreds of tons of over-ripe tomatoes bring thrown in the streets for exactly one hour. This is the culmination of  a week long festival features music, parades, dancing, and fireworks.

This live webcam is in Buñol for La Tomatina:

Approximately 20,000–50,000 tourists come to find out more about the tomato fight, multiply by several times Buñol's normal population of slightly over 9,000. There is limited accommodation for people who come to La Tomatina, and thus many participants stay in Valencia and travel by bus or train to Buñol, about 38 km outside the city. In preparation for the dirty mess that will ensue, shopkeepers use huge plastic covers on their storefronts in order to protect them. They also use about 150,000 tomatoes, just about 90,000 pounds.

Buñol (Valencian: Bunyol) is a town and municipality in the province of Valencia, Spain. The municipality has an area of some 112 km², and is situated approximately 38 km west of the provincial and autonomous community capital city, Valencia.
