The Bikaner Camel Festival

In India's state of Rajasthan, every year the Bikaner Camel Festival takes place, with breeders coming from all over India. Tourists flock from around the world to see the various events...from camel races and rides, to camel beauty pageants and shearing contests. The intricate haircuts are done with sharp scissors by artists making traditional Indian patterns into the camel's coat.
