Charlevoix Camel Cup . May 5th, 2018 . noon-6pm
The Charlevoix Camel Cup, is sure to be a fun and exciting afternoon. Come out to the Elks Club at 12735 US 31 North in Charlevoix to watch twenty-four camels race to the finish line. The wooden camel cutouts were crafted by Charlevoix’s own Boogie Carlson. Each of the camels are sponsored and creatively decorated by businesses or community members.
The camels will race in eight rounds, with a ninth round of the highest earning camels determining the overall winner. Six camels race per round and each round is won by rolling large numbered cubes that determine which camel moves a space forward on the raceway. Get involved by purchasing camel bucks and betting on your favorite camel(s) in each round to win!
There is no fee to get in, but there will be races to bet on and 50/50 drawings!
All proceeds from the Charlevoix Camel Cup will go toward the fireworks for the popular Bridge Drop event on New Year’s Eve.
Mark your calendars as you will not want to miss this fun event!
