Serving Up Deep-Fried Rattlesnake At
The Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup
Lately I have noticed an uptick in the number of comments to my YouTube video of the Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup.

This due to the fact that the Roundup takes place, annually, the second weekend of March.

I thought I had just updated the Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup info on my Eyes on Texas website.

But I had not.

Yet one more example of how fast a year zips by.

Below is the 2012 Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup info so you can find out when you need to be in Sweetwater for the Miss Snake Charmer Pageant and other Roundup events....

The Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup weekend will officially kick off on Thursday, March 8, 2012 with the Rattlesnake Review Parade at 4pm through downtown Sweetwater. That evening, you can attend the Miss Snake Charmer Pageant held in the Sweetwater Municipal Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. The doors will open at 8:00 a.m. Friday March 9, 2012 for the 54th Annual Sweetwater Jaycees World's Largest Rattlesnake Round-Up with snakes being weighed in at 7:00 a.m. that morning at the Nolan County Coliseum. Catch one of the snake Safety demonstrations while you are at the Roundup and don't forget to try some deep-fried Western Diamondback Rattlesnake meat.
