What Would You Do With 240,000 Pounds of Tomatoes?

A village in Spain is cleaning up after the world's biggest food fight.

The Tomatina Festival began back in 1945 when a fight broke out among a carnival crowd.

Now tourists come from all over the world to take part in the annual tomato war.

This year, 30,000 people threw more than 240,000 pounds of tomatoes.

The town says the boost in tourism is worth the massive mess.
