BUNOL, Spain (CNN) -- The main street in this Spanish village resembled pasta sauce after thousands of villagers squashed 100 tons of juicy, ripe tomatoes during a traditional tomato-throwing festival.

The fiesta, known as Tomatada, began with revelers pelting each other with the ripe red fruit before breaking out into the foot-stomping melee. Join the fun with CNN Interactive -- but beware of the splattering 'maters.
