Boyacá, Colombia, June 14, 2009--Wallowing in a sea of squashed tomatoes, a boy takes part in the annual "Tomatina" food fight.

Tomatinas take place around the world, though the the most famous occurs in the Spanish town of Buñol each August. That event is kicked off by revelers who climb a greasy pole to rescue a ham. (Watch a video of the Buñol Tomatina.)
