Have you ever heard of the Tomato Battle? Well, it's coming to New York City this Saturday. It's pretty self-explanatory as you literally throw tomatoes and get tomatoes thrown at you. The Tomato Battle also has beer, music, and some of the traditions of Spain’s La Tomatina tomato-throwing festival and Germany’s Oktoberfest.

The 2013 Tomato Battle takes place this Saturday, July 20th at Brooklyn's Aviator Sports and Events Center. The event goes from 1pm to 6pm and costs about $50 plus a $10 shuttle fee. You can learn more about the event and purchse tickets by clicking here.
