Second phase of Saudi Crown Prince Camel Festival begins

The second phase of the Crown Prince Camel Festival kicks off on Saturday in Taif, after a one-week pause due to Eid Al-Adha.
Ten racing rounds of 2-4 km will take place over the course of two days. The first phase witnessed the participation of camel owners from all over the Gulf.
Participants said the festival’s timing and location are appropriate in terms of the temperature, and they praised the Saudi Federation of Camels for ensuring its success.
The festival includes a number of competitions, including one for photographers for a prize of SR90,000 ($23,998), and another for commentators for prizes amounting to SR125,000.
The festival aims to enhance the camel heritage in Saudi, Arab and Islamic culture.
