India is the most diversified country in the world, not only in terms of its various people but also with regard to the very many traditions here. You can enjoy the same festival in different styles. Holi is yet another festival which is celebrated with colours, flower petals and now a new style has been added to the celebration. This new form of Holi is played with tomatoes and is termed as La Tomatina.

Yes! The same festival you enjoyed onscreen in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The world’s largest tomato throwing festival has knocked on Indian doors in Shillong. The capital of Meghalaya, Shillong hosted a fun-filled festival at Water Sports Complex.

Hundreds of people took part in the event to have a gala time. The best part of the event was that it didn’t use fresh tomatoes. Ripe tomatoes discarded by local vegetable sellers were used to make people crazy. The event took place to promote tourism in the state.

La Tomatina is a fun festival that is originally celebrated in Valencia, Spain where thousands of people participate and throw tomatoes at each other every year and enjoy themselves.
