Festivals seem to be the coolest way to take a break and step out of your normal life. Do you know any other places where you can smash a stranger with a pillow or hurl a squashed tomato into someone’s face without being fined? These opportunities attract millions of people, and in some cases, these battles are not only full of fun, but also full of messiness.

GIGGAG discovered 15 of the craziest festivals, and we hope this list will help you plan your next vacation.

5. Els Enfarinats, Spain

There are 2 groups of people that take part in this battle. The first one consists of married men (Els Enfarinats) who gain control over the area and enact absurd laws. They look for people who disobey their orders and fine them. Another group (La Oposicio) tries to fight back. At the end all of the money they gather goes to charity.

Each year 2 rival churches take part in a “war.” They fire a huge number of rockets trying to hit each other’s bell tower. The winner is supposed to be declared by the direct hits, but every time, the churches decide to settle the score the next year.
