If any of you follow Bike and Roll here (or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram), you may have noticed we have a special affinity for a certain plush ungulate… yes, we’re talking about Aladdin the Camel!
But did you happen to know that our social media mascot is a fuzzy replica (shhh, don’t tell him that!) of the real deal? We kid you not! There is a REAL camel… named Aladdin… who visits Mount Vernon every year for Christmas! (And, did we mention he is an especially friendly camel with a fondness for smooching his visitors?)
The real deal, Monsieur Aladdin himself (he even has a Facebook!), will arrive at Mount Vernon estate this year on November 28th.
