Sweetwater Rattlesnake Round-Up (2015)

Billed “The World’s Largest Rattlesnake Round-Up,” this is one of several rattlesnake round-ups in Texas; some 30,000 spectators come to watch the goings-on. It is sponsored by the Sweetwater Jaycees, who stress the focus on safety and the benefits of the round-up. The weekend events include snake-handling demonstrations and the awarding of prizes for the biggest snake. There are also a parade, rattlesnake dances with country bands, a Miss Snake Charmer Queen contest, and a rattlesnake meat-eating contest. More than 4,000 pounds of rattlesnake meat are served each year. More… Discuss
