Fangtastic Waurika Rattlesnake Hunt

Fangtastic Waurika Rattlesnake Hunt

This year's Fangtastic Waurika Rattlesnake Hunt will be April 12 through the 14.  It takes place on Main St. in downtown Waurika, Okla.

Activities include carnival rides, games, food vendors, a flea market, thrill show and caravan hunting of Diamondback rattlesnakes. Have a "fangtastic" time as you witness snake handlers perform daring and courageous feats in a pit with live rattlesnakes.

Have your picture taken with a live Diamondback rattlesnake in the on-site photobooth, or put your taste buds to the test with a helping of deep-fried rattlesnake meat. Snake meat, rattlers and hides will be up for sale. Join in the 5K or 1 mile fun run on Saturday. Prizes are awarded for the longest snake captured, the most rattles and more.

All proceeds benefit the Waurika Volunteer Fire Department.
