Tomato Romp! Milwaukee's Caged Tomato Fight

By

Milwaukee has long been known for its festivals, yet the Tomato Romp! on North Avenue is surely one of the most notable. Definitely the messiest. At first, it seems like every other festival, with the requisite music, vendors and drinks -- in this case, local bars and restaurants vie for the title of Best Bloody Mary -- but soon, you realize Tomato Romp has something that no other festival has: a 500-person, caged, ripe / rotten tomato fight. Yes, 6,000 pounds of rotten tomatoes.

Want to get in on the action? Tomato Romp 2013 is scheduled for Saturday, September 14. See what your in for with these chronologically ordered photos of a past tomato fight.
