Do you feel like doing something out of the ordinary this weekend? Perhaps release your inner child and relive those food fights that always got you in so much trouble? Then you might want to make your way to the Tomato Battle at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton
this Saturday, Sept. 29
The Tomato Battle is all about getting dressed up in costume, spending some time at the beer garden and enjoying live music, all while preparing for a battle in which the weapon of choice is 300,000 pounds of past-ripe Roma tomatoes. More than 5,000 tomato-toting participants will then open fire as round after round of tomatoes are manually crushed, squirted, and pureed in the ultimate food fight.
Registration begins at noon and runs to 3:30 with the Tomato Battle ready to rumble at 4 p.m.
