The Doll Clinic: 3 Decades Of Toy Restoration In Sydney

Tomatina 2014 Overripe tomatoes were hurled in a massive red food fight today in the town of Bunol, Spain. The La Tomatina festival -- held each year on the last Wednesday of August -- evolved from a street fight in the 1940s when a group of young men who wanted to participate in the "gigantes y cabezudos" parade used tomatoes from a vegetable stand as weapons. An estimated 22,000 people showed up this year for the food fight. --Lloyd Young ( 13 photos total ) Revelers take part in the annual "Tomatina" festivities in the village of Bunol, near Valencia on Aug. 28.
