Local wine and water festival the evening before in Requena, near to Valencia
This is wine growing country at harvest time, so we enjoy the celebrations in typically Spanish fashion. As well as the street party, fireworks, live bands and parades, the highlight is a party in the bull ring where locals sing and dance and watch baby bulls chase locals and tourists around the bull ring. Many people consider the wine and water festival as the highlight of their La Tomatina tour.
