If the running with the bulls is a little to much for you adrenaline junkies, and you don't mind getting messy, here is something right up your alley. The 2012 Midwest Tomato Fest. No you don't eat them with a little salt or Ranch dressing, you throw them at each other!!

According to City Pages in Minneapolis, the event was held last year at Afton Alps which was the first year of the event. It was a huge success, but they decided to move it to downtown Minneapolis Portland Avenue to make it more accessible to  people.

The thousands of tomatoes that are used for the event, are all past the prime to sell, so they would have been thrown out. And, some of the proceeds from the event will go to help out a local Twin Cities Shelter. The event is this Saturday June  14th from Noon-7pm at 395 Portland Avenue in Minneapolis. For a preview of the fun, check out the video from last year below:
