If you are in New York get ready for a tomato fight
If you are in New York City on July 20 2013 then watch out for flying tomatoes. Tide, the detergent, is sponsoring a Tomato Battle where you can come and throw tomatoes at each other. The event will be held from 12 noon to 6pm at the Aviator Sports & Events Center, 3159 Flatbush Ave, New York, NY 11234. Entrance tickets cost about $50 and include unlimited supplies of tomatoes - the organizers have promised that if they run out of tomatoes they will supply enough mud to make you really dirty! And, of course, Tide is expected to provide samples of their new detergent additive "Tide Vivid White+Bright Boost" to make sure your clothes are sparkling clean again. To avoid leaving a trace of ketchup all the way home, the organizers recommend that you bring along a change of clothes.
The Tomato Battle is a new event being organized in multiple cities across the United States apparently in an attempt to copy the famous La Tomatina Festival which is held every August near Valencia in Spain where reportedly 50,000 people gather to throw 100 tonnes of tomato at each other - what a colossal waste of ketchup!
