About the Event: 

The annual Donkey Derby staged by E Clampus Vitus 7-11 commemorates the miners' race up the hill to Dogtown to show off their good fortune when they found the 54-pound gold nugget at Whiskey Flat in April 1859. During today's race, donkey and drover teams compete to get up the hill and through an obstacle course-while carrying 54-pound weights. First, second and third place cash prizes are awarded the winners. Come root for your favorite donkey!
