Local authorities in Spain have announced a plan to make the La Tomatina (tomato throwing festival) an all ticketed event. In recent years the number of people attending La Tomatina has increased dramatically, and it’s believed almost 50,000 people attended the event in 2012, resulting in huge crowd congestion.
There is now a plan in place to sell 20,000 tickets at EUR10 per person. However no details have been released as to who will be selling the tickets and when they will be sold. At Pillow Tours we agree with this new policy, as the tiny back streets of Bunol is not equipped to deal with such large crowds.
