Trae Day 2015: Camel Rides and Everything Else

Trae Day 2015
Sam Houston Race Park
July 22, 2015

Another year, another Trae Day in the City of Houston. The annual family festival took place on a scorching Wednesday afternoon at a new location, and was filled with the usual distribution of school supplies, free medical screenings, rides and activities for the kids, and a music showcase. Check out scenes from the 2015 edition of Trae Day below:

Thanks again to Trae Tha Truth for all he does for the community. We look forward to next year's Trae Day, and maybe one day we will also get a chance to ride a camel.

When he's not roaming around the city in search of tacos and graffiti, Marco points his camera lens toward the vibrant Houston Music scene and beyond. You can follow his adventures on Instagram: @MarcoFromHouston.
