An estimated 20,000 people threw 130 tons of ripe tomatoes in the world's biggest tomato fight held annually in the Spanish town of Bunol. The annual, hour-long street bash was inspired by a food fight among kids back in 1945. This year the debt-burdened town began charging participants an entry fee of 10 euros ($13) for the first time. Residents do not pay.
