The World’s Biggest Food Fight
Not only allowed, but encouraged!
From Ivrea, Italy: The Annual Battle of the Oranges. This event involves people throwing oranges at each other to symbolize rebellion. It apparently represents a time in history when local rebels rose up and overthrew a tyrant by tossing rocks at his soldiers.
For the festival, the town dresses in battle garb and splits up into nine teams. Then they spend three full days throwing a half-million pounds of oranges at each other!
The event is officially the largest food fight in Europe.
