Water guns, insect sprayers, and buckets are all filled with the deep red liquid that leaves attendees stained from head to toe.
This wild event takes place on the morning of June 29th each year. But the night before is when the party really gets started. The festivities draw a mostly local crowd, making it a fun cultural experience as you stay up all night drinking and dancing in the streets until the wine fight begins in the early morning hours.
