Apparently the Camel Races started as a hoax and now its a 44 year tradition in Virginia City. Jockeys ride camels in a series of races, but that is not all. There are also ostrich races, armadillos etc. It is just silly.
The races are usually the first week in September. Vendors sell drinks for the spectators.
