Argungu festival, colorful annual festival, takes place in Argungu, a riverside town in Kebbi State, about 64 miles from Sokoto.
Argungu festival, the leading tourist attraction in the area, originated in August 1934, when the Sultan Dan Mu'azu made an historic visit. As a tribute, a grand fishing festival was organised. Since then, it has become a celebrated yearly event held between February and March.
During the festival, hundreds of local men and boys enter the water, armed with large fishnet scoops. They are joined by canoes filled with drummers, plus men rattling huge seed-filled gourds to drive the fish to shallow waters.
Vast nets are cast and a wealth of fish are harvested, from giant Nile perch to the peculiar Balloon fish. The festival is also marked with diving competitions, swimming, drinking, dancing, canoe racing and wild duck hunting.
Equipment: There are no much gears needed for this event, you only need to have your fishnet scoop, which can be bought at the venue of the event.
