Camel Races

Travelogue and Adventure Series


       In our 26th year, this is a program that gives a unique opportunity for individuals to experience travel through the eyes of a videographer, who presents a live narration of their travels.  Shows are three times a year in November, January, and March. All shows are held at the Bay City State Theatre.  

      Join us March 11, 2019   as renowned adventurer Karin Muller travels the 3200 mile Inca Road.    This road was built over 500 years ago to link the outposts of the Inca Empire.  As she travels this route, she spins it into a modern tapestry of faces and memories, while intertwining a chronicle of the Inca and how they lived, worshiped, and warred. In this expedition, she searches for remnants of the ancient road, while offering a rare glimpse into the descendants of the Inca.
