On the final day of the festival, a competition is held in which thousands of men line up along the river and at the sound of a gunshot, all of them jump into the river and have an hour to catch the largest fish. Bare-hand fishing competitions among over 1,000 Fishermen, equipped with a hand net and large gourd, is the main event of this cultural extravaganza.
