Excerpt from the Site.
Have you ever been hit with a tomato ripe or aged? So, you know they both can hurt. That is why the tomatoes used during our fights are aged and softer than ripe tomatoes. But you will be hit by a tomato and it will hurt. Please note we can not guarantee all tomatoes are as aged and soft as others as there is no way to individually check hundreds of thousands tomatos. Also, safety goggles must be worn for this event. In fact, you can purchase a pair before D-day when you register for the event. In addition, all event participants must sign our event waiver agreement to participate in our events. Rest assured we do all we can to ensure a safe event. Furthermore, there is no direct throwing at someones head. Any participant in violation of this will be removed and asked to leave the event. However, the facts are with tomatoes flying you will get hit and they will hurt. All participants assume all risk associated with getting hit with flying tomatoes More Tomato Blast Information
