Photos: Getting sauced at the Colorado Tomato Battle

Categories: Events, Photos

The Colorado Tomato Battle at Dick's Sporting Goods Park Saturday was a mash-up of childhood frivolity and big-kid fun. Though the structure was more formal than the old Tomato Wars between Coloradans and Texans at Twin Lakes, the result was the same: utter chaos and tomato soup. Tomato Battle founders Max Kraner and Clint Nelson combined concepts from La Tomatina Festival in Spain and Oktoberfest in Germany to come up with a food fight complete with live music and beer that they could market to cities across the United States. Nathan Federico brings back these photos from the July 7 battle.
