$25 for Admission to the Tomato Battle ($50 Value)

Admission grants access to Market Creek Events and Venues on Saturday, July 14, and the event takes place from noon to 6 p.m. In the event of a tomato shortage, the festival will go on as planned but will be transformed into a mud battle.

Tomato Battle

At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.
