There’s An Annual Flour Battle In Spain, And It Looks Absolutely Amazing

December 28 saw the annual Festival Of Els Enfarinats in Ibi, Spain. The tradition dates back 200 years, and involves two teams pelting each other with flour, eggs and firecrackers.

The battle is between two groups - ‘Els Enfarinats’, a group of married men who control the village for a the day, and who create a list of ridiculous laws that incur fines. The other group is called ‘La Oposicio’, who try and restore order. At the end of the day, all the money from the fines is donated to charitable causes in the town.
