(130826) -- LAGOS, Aug. 26, 2013 (Xinhua) -- Local children wave to tourists during the Osun Osogbo festival, or the river goddess festival, in Osogbo, capital of southwest Nigeria's Osun State, on Aug. 23, 2013. Every August in Osogbo, the festival presents an opportunity for the indigenes of Osogbo, their friends and well-wishers as well as fun-loving tourists to converge in town for the yearly celebration. The festival has gained a global recognition to such an extent that the Osun Grove was enlisted as a world heritage site in 2005. (Xinhua/Zhang Weiyi)
