Thousands participate in massive tomato fight in Chile

ROUGH CUT (No Reporter Narration) Thousands of people participated in the third annual "War of the Tomato" on Saturday (February 16) in the Chilean city of Quillon. In a take on the famed tomato festival in Bunol, Spain, over 40 tonnes of tomatoes were used by the participants to lob at each other. In total, about 7,000 people participated in the tomato fight. One participant, Johny Gonzalez, said that there was more than enough tomatoes for the fight. Local tomato growers supplied the fruits of their labour for the event, for the purpose of raising their local crop's national profile. While similar events have been held in Colombia, Costa Rica and the United States, Quillon mayor Alberto Gyhra said that Quillon is the only location in the Americas that has had the event for three years running.
