02:30 Your day begins by meeting with the rest of our festivalgoers in meeting point, Get on a bus as soon as you can! Once all buses are loaded we take off for Buñol for our famous sangria party!***expected departure 03:30 am***
7:30 We arrive in Buñol and the SANGRIA PARTY BEGINS!!!
8:30 After an hour of drowning yourself in sangria we make our way to the festival to get ourselves a fantastic spot so we are truly in the heart of the action!
11:00 The fight begins! Just in case at this stage you aren’t aware the mission here is to smash as many people with as many tomatoes as possible for the next hour until the last truck has passed.
12:00 Well, the fight is over but there is still so much going on. At this stage the town starts pumping out drinks along with thumping music so while you are making your way to your bus you can grab a icy cold sangria or cerveza and dance your way back to your bus. Make sure to keep an eye out for the locals out the front of their houses who are waiting to hose you down so you are squeaky clean for your ride home.
14:00 BUSES DEPART!!! IF YOU ARE NOT ON IT, IT WILL LEAVE WITHOUT YOU! For those that don’t get carried away partying in town, at this stage you will most likely be on your air conditioned bus curled in a little ball and fast asleep.
20:00 Arrival back in Madrid!
