Brooklyn’s First Tomato Battle

Every summer in Valencia Spain party seekers from all over the world flock to the town of Bunol to fight in a battle, called La Tomatina, where old rotten tomatoes are thrown in the streets.

The New York City Tomato Battle which took place last Saturday July 20th at The Aviation and Events Center located at Floyd Bennett Field 3159 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn New York. Inspired in part by the La Tomatina festival in Spain, this is the first time New York City has hosted a Tomato Battle event.

The massive tomato fight did away with thousands pounds of tomatoes and there were several thousand enthusiastic people who attended the battle. The Tomato Battle fight had offered beside the battle itself a Beer Garden (of course!), live entertainment, a costume contest, and a wash up session for all. Participants in the 6 hour event were cautioned to bring eye protection, close toed shoes and a change of clothing (of course!) and they definitely needed it.

This unique Brooklyn event was well organized and went extremely well! Most likely, since such an amazing time was had by all who attended, we hope this Brooklyn Tomato Battle may become a Brooklyn tradition. Go Brooklyn!

Brooklyn is the best place to visit and hang out as well as to invest money into Brooklyn Real Estate or to move in and stay!
