Audiences and combatants alike meet at Lakeview Park on Sunday, August 18 at noon to prepare for the fruit-flinging festivities. Participants enter a walled arena and, instead of just tomatoes, fling expired fruit, including bananas, berries, and oranges, at their fellow combatants while spectators watch from behind protective panels. Those entering the arena are encouraged to wear safety goggles and clothing that can be dirtied, or don wild costumes should they wish to compete for special prizes. An after-party concert for pass holders enables warriors to celebrate with other participants during a night of comedic acts, DJ performances, and a secret special guest appearance. Proceeds from the race go to various charities that will also be on-site during the event to raise funds and awareness.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Fruit Warriors

While smartphone apps simulate the thrill of battling produce, Fruit Warriors gives participants a taste of real, produce-fueled combat. Inside a walled-off arena, warriors garbed in eclectic costumes and safety goggles seek out and pelt their rivals with expired fruit, creating a large-scale food fight not seen since the Boston Tea Party. In a post-fight party, rivals put aside their arena battles to dance to the sounds of performing bands and DJs, or laugh at comedians. While playing in food all day may make one hungry, Fruit Warriors comes prepared to settle growling stomachs with a number of food trucks and brews inside the Alcohol Palace.
