The Alice springs camel cup

We went to the camel cup today. It's a big deal here in Alice. 
Lots of us from th caravan park walked there as it's only a 15-20 minutes away by foot
I spent money buying the kids a souvenir and I got Melody a stuffed camel
We saw a few races and then it got hot so hubby and I came back and we are now resting in the cool of our van 
Hope you enjoy the videos. Everyone who attended were having fun. They even had camel races for the little kids. They ran using the hobbit horses only they had camel heads on them! 
The two little ones in the parade who are in duck suits are there because they have a rubber duck race. All the ducks, about 200 of them, are put in th back of a cement mixer and them tipped out. The first to cross the finish line wins! Money raised goes to charity and to win you have to buy a raffle ticket and your duck number has to win
It was a lovely day and one I will remember for a long time 
See ya xxx
