Fishing Festival in Nigeria

The Arugungu fishing festival is an annual Nigerian cultural event, in which thousands of fishermen take part to fish in the Matan Fada river in Nigeria

The Mata Fada river might not be very impressive but it’s full of fish, because people come here to fish only once a year. After the time limit is over, the team who caught the largest fish is escorted by the sultans’s guards to present their prize to him. This year the winners receive a brand new bus as a prize as well as one million Naira (around $7500).

This is one hell of a festival!
