Every year thousands of locals and tourists climb a mountain in the northern Spanish province of La Rioja to celebrate St. Peter's day covering each other in red wine while tanker trucks filled with wine distribute the alcoholic beverage to water pistols, back mounted spraying devices, buckets which are randomly poured on heads and into any other available container. More than nine thousand people threw around 130,000 litres of wine during this year's Haro Wine Festival, according to local media. AFP PHOTO / CESAR MANSOCESAR MANSO/AFP/Getty Images
