Every year in the Indian state of Rajasthan, thousands of people and camels make a trip to the small town of Pushkar for the annual Pushkar Mela, or Pushkar Camel Fair. One of the oldest and largest camel fairs in the world, Pushkar has grown to become an important attraction for foreign tourists in recent years.

Aside from the trading of livestock, the Pushkar Camel fair includes music, sports, and other events such as the "longest mustache" and 'Indian bride dress-up' competitions.
