  1. Do not enter with bottles or hard objects – you can cause an accident or damages to your battle’s fellows.
  2. Do not tear or throw your T-shirts, nor others T-shirts.
  3. Squash the tomatoes before throwing them, the hit will be less painful.

  6. Follow the security staff directions.

7 TIPS YOU MUST KNOW!

  1. Wear old clothes – which you are ready to throw away.
  2. Wear shoes with a decent grip – avoid using flip-flops – you can lose them in the tomato fight.
  3. Use the goggles – your eyes can be sore because of the tomato acid.
  4. Use waterproof cameras– in case u want to take pictures or just use a protective case.
  5. Follow the security directions and keep a safe distance of the lorries.
