The International Camel Races in Virginia City attracts nearly 40 jockeys and an enormous crowd of spectators. Contestants race their animals around a track and compete for prizes during this three-day event. The camel races also feature heats between people riding ostrich, emus and zebras. The Virginia City Camel Races are tame compared to camel races in other parts of the world, but they still provide plenty of action and excitement!
