The City Council of Bunol who organises the tomato fight, La Tomatina presently does not put an age restriction of those who can participate in the tomato fight. Whoever you should note that the people in the tomato fight can get pretty carried away randomly throwing tomatoes in all directions. It can, wherever you may be in the tomato fight, get pretty full on. There is no real vantage points within the tomato fight where you can just stand back and take in what is going on as a spectator. You are either in, or not.
