Tomato fight that is.
More than 50,000 visitors are expected to flood downtown Pittston for our 24th Annual four day event.
The Tomato Fights will be held on Saturday at 1:30.
Bring your great aim, and attend at Cooper's Waterfront parking lot.
Entry fee is $5.00 and you could purchase tee shirts that will benifit the Greater Pittston charities.
Tomato fights originated in the 1940's in a village of Bunol, and began as a civil disturbance that was broken up by police. The exact origin no one seems to know. Here are a few theories.
- The result of a steet brawl near a grocery store?
- Practical joke on a poor musician?
- Tomatos were being thrown at a local politician?
- School fight among children?
Whatever the start or cause of the original famous tomato fight we continue the tradition.
