PHOTOS: Camel Festival Includes Beauty Contest

For camels and those who admire them, it's an important time of year: the Mazayin Dhafra Camel Festival, near the city of Madinat Zayed which is about 94 miles west of Abu Dhabi, draws participants from around the Gulf region. The event features camel races, a display of handcrafts, and yes, a camel beauty contest, all of which help boost promotion of the area's folklore.(Photos by Karim Sahib/AFP/Getty Images)
