Tomato Assault

I had a notice of this sitting in my inbox for a few days now, and didn't get around to reading it until this morning.   Have you heard about the Tomato Assault?

It's coming the the Washington State Fair this summer.  That's the Puyallup Fair.  In case you hadn't heard about that - they've changed their name.  I guess they finally got approval to be the official state fair for Washington State.  It was somewhere else for years (where?  forgot now) but their fair has mostly died out. It turns out the the Puyallup Fair had way more 4H, attendance, vendors, etc. going on, so they were able to take over the official title.  So now it's the Washington State Fair in Puyallup.  I'm guessing nobody really cares and is still going to be calling it "The Puyallup" anyway.

But I digress.  The Tomato Assault is a ginormous tomato fight.  Check it out.

It all happens at the fair grounds on July 13.  A beer garden, great food, a costume contest, live DJ and inflatables -- then on to the pitching of 40,00 pounds of rotten tomatoes at each other.   Wow!

Tickets at Brown Paper Tickets, or their web site.  Also Living Social has a deal on the entry package right now (in case you read this before deadline).
