|These guys look ready for a tomato fight!|
The event is going to run from noon to six. Whether that means it is going to be 6 hours of tomato tossing--I don't know.
That isn't exactly a small price to pay to get in a food fight, but if you look at clips like the one above and on YouTube the festival in Spain looks like a blast. If I lived in thee Windy City and had 50 bucks to spare I would be tempted.

Oh--in case you are wondering, they aren't using good tomatoes ready for eating but ones that are past ripe. So if you are not participating you might want to bring a nose clip or something. Those folks are going to stink...but it does look like fun...
