Dallas Tomato Battle

by Steven Doyle

Back in the 1980’s there was an epic food fight between Colorado and Texas in Twin Lakes, Colorado 140 miles southwest of Denver as a way to vent about Texans vacationing in Colorado. The weapons were truckloads of rotten tomatoes.

The battle grew each year, bringing tourists in much like the Spanish La Tomatina festival in Bunol. The fun was eventually stopped in the early 90’s when the insurance premium rocketed.    

Reminisce no more, the battle is back and taking place in Dallas, Texas this year at Fair Park November 12, 2011 and will feature a costume contest, live music and plenty of beer.

For more information, or to purchase tickets, go to the Tomato Battle website.
