The camel races were pretty fun. Heather's initial commentary was something to the effect of, "I thought they would move faster than that". So she was somewhat bored, Rowan seemed to have fun though. They also had emu races which consisted of kids chasing emus with brooms toward a finish line, but I wasn't in a good place to take pictures of those. The weirdest thing about the whole deal was that one of the big sponsors this year was The Way to Happiness Foundation
, espousing the way to happiness envisioned by L. Ron Hubbard
. I think it was somewhat off-putting to many people, as the Happiness folks were rather aggressively pamphleting everyone. On the other hand it's kind of cool to have a Scientology tract with a camel on the cover.
