It's difficult to have a total aversion to the tomato. Even if you're the type of person who's absolutely disgusted by the thought of eating the squishy red fruit in raw form, chances are you still enjoy a bowl of spaghetti, slice of pizza or generous serving of lasagna. A staple of healthy consumption, and a sustaining force for Italians everywhere, the tomato gets its annual due at the Hanover Tomato Festival. With more than 200 craft booths, food vendors, games, contests and entertainment, the event features the tomato in all its forms (fried green ones, BLTs, pies). With as many as 40,000 people expected to attend Saturday, July 10, the Hanover Tomato Festival takes place at Pole Green Park in Mechanicsville from 9 a.m.-4
