Our 2nd Annual Camel Races were a success!! Wooden Camels, sponsored by individuals and businesses, were dressed very creatively, and then raced against one another determined by the roll of numbered cubes. Proceeds from this year's race went to the Riverview Discovery Island project, formerly known as Imagination Station. This year's races were held at LFA Hall, 2323 Amelith Rd, Bay City, Mi. This event was licensed under Michigan State Lottery laws
Sponsors for this year's event were:
