Fishing Festival in Argungu, Nigeria
Every year in the town of Argungu in Nigeria, men compete to pull the biggest fish from the river with their bare hands. The festival initially began as a communal religious event, but it has undergone some changes since it first began. Now more than 30,000 fishermen participate, using their hands, nets, and gourds to scoop up their floppy contest entries. The winner takes a prize of $7,000.
