Camels, ostriches and zebras make a fine spectacle to watch as they race around the Virginia City Arena & Fairgrounds with jockeys precariously perched on their backs. It’s a sight you won’t see anywhere else. Bring the family out to enjoy this hilarious family event, a true staple in northern Nevada. After the races, join the Camel Hump to C Street where thirsty camels have been known to duck into a bar or two.
