New York Tomato BattleAviator Sports and Events Center
3159 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY
Stealing a page from Spain's infamous annual Tomatina festival, the Tomato Battle is a full-on food fight, where you and thousands of strangers are given access to tons of tomatoes for the sole purpose of pummeling each other. In addition to making a saucy red mess, revelers can compete in a costume contest, take in live music, consume beverages in the beer garden, and engage in other fruitful exercises. Be sure to dress accordingly (tomato stains are a bitch to get of summer whites), and find your way to Floyd Bennett Field for what should be the diciest throwdown of the summer.
