La Tomatina - is held in the Valencian town of Bunol, which involves a tomato battle. It began on the last Wednesday of August in 1945 when a group of young individuals joined the musicians at the Giants and Big-head figures parade, which caused a person to fall from the float. His annoyance led to a fit of rage, which angered the crowd with a nearby market stall became the ‘weapon’ of choice. The following year the group returned with tomatoes and the tradition became a popular festival despite efforts by law enforcement to stop the tomato hurling.
Holi in India - the Hindu- festival is held on the day of the fullmoon of the Phaluga month; a celebration of the victory of the good over the bad and beginning of Spring. It is one of the most famous celebrations in the northern parts of India.
Songkran - is the Thai New Year’s festival, which is held on the 13th April every year. The symbol of water represents purification and the washing away of sins and bad luck. The huge water fight takes place demanding for major streets to close to create the arena for the fun battle.
