Batalla del Vino

The "Battle of the Wine" is held annually in June in the Spanish city of Haro in the region Rioja organized. The tradition goes back to the Middle Ages, when the Castilian cities of Mirande de Ebro and Haro fought each other bloody over border disputes. In remembrance of this, a peaceful battle takes place every year on Peter and Paul's Day, during which the crowd, dressed in white outer clothing, splashes with red wine.
