World’s largest camel model breaks another Saudi festival record

The world’s biggest camel festival, held in Saudi Arabia, has smashed another record with a giant model of the revered animal. Prince Fahd bin Jalawi bin Musaed, president of the Saudi Camel Federation, unveiled the towering sculpture during the Crown Prince Camel Festival in the presence of Taif Gov. Saad Al-Maimouni and representative of Guinness World Records, Glenn Pollard.
The statue, erected in King Faisal Park in Taif’s camel village, stands on a steel base, is 10 meters wide, 4.65 meters high, and contains more than 51,000 lights which illuminate it from within.
The replica camel is the second Guinness record-breaker to be announced at the festival after the gathering’s first edition was registered as the biggest camel sports event in the world, with the participation of 11,186 camels competing in 787 rounds.
The Crown Prince Camel Festival’s competitions are considered the strongest and largest of their kind in the region. Prizes worth SR53 million ($14.1 million) will be handed out to participants from throughout Saudi Arabia and other Gulf and Arab countries.
Backed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the festival aims to celebrate and promote the cultural importance of camels, while its growing success also provides a major economic boost to the Kingdom.
