Snake City

March 24, 2012

Rattlesnake Roundup will continue until 6 p.m. today and again noon until 6 p.m. Sunday

Rattles are shaking at the Howard County fairgrounds and will continue until 5 p.m. Sunday.
The Big Spring 48th Rattlesnake Roundup started Saturday with snake demonstrations and a free arts and crafts show.
“The snake numbers are down this year, but it looks like the number of people is going to be up,” Roundup Chairman Dennis Burns said.
Those attending can expect to see milking demonstrations, snake shows and races.
“We want people to come out and see us. While they are here they can expect to learn about snakes, hat to do and what not to do when they encounter a snake,” Burns said.
During the roundup, awards will be given for the heaviest snake and the snake with the most rattles.
Admission to the arts and crafts show is free and admission to the snake shows are $5 for adults and $3 for children age 4 to 11 years old.
The annual rattlesnake show is put on each year by AMBUCS (American Business Club).
