The famous Tomatina Festival, the Tomato Battle or Tomatina Festival takes place inland from Valencia in the small village of Bunol. LA TOMATINA 2020 CANCELLED :( The City Council of Bunol (Valencia) has decided to suspend the Tomatina, its international festival, for "responsibility" and in favor of the "security" of those who participate in it every year in the face of the current health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Prior to 2013 anywhere from 40,000 to 50,000 (reported to .. continue reading be 50,000 in 2012) people crammed into this huge tomato fight, greatly expanding Bunol's normal 9,000 person population. There is limited accommodation for people who come to La Tomatina, so many people take the easier option of staying in nearby Valencia just 38km to Bunol by bus or train. At around 11am many trucks haul the bounty of tomatoes into the centre of the town, Plaza del Pueblo. The cleaning process involves the use of fire trucks to spray down the streets, with water provided from a Roman aqueduct. The authorities seem more concerned with cleaning the town than cleaning the visitors, so some people find water at the Bunol River to wash themselves, although some kind residents will hose passers-by down.
