    For those able to arrive on Thursday, Forbes hosts camel races every year on Good Friday. I have been told they are a hoot and well worth attending. You can check out photos from past events on Facebook / Forbes/ Camel racing.
    Gates open at 10am, entry is $10 for adults, aged pensioners are $5 and children under 16 are free.
    There is usually a 7 race program with the main race being The Forbes camel cup.
    Last year they also had cray fish races, push bike shearing, sheep dog demonstration, antique tractor display.They are yet to confirm these events for 2016.
    We have been given an area to display our kombis, so we will need a rough idea of numbers. Please comment below if you will be arriving in time to attend the cup.

    Are they holding camel races or dromedary races? Therein you will find the answer you seek. Unfortunately I feel they may need to change the events name!!!!
