Rattle Snake Round-up

Thousands of people headed to Opp Saturday for the annual Rattlesnake Rodeo.

Snake handlers put several of the rattlers in front of a crowd and watched as they tried to inch over the finish line for a win.

The rodeo is expected to draw a crowd of 30-thousand people this year.

In addition to the snake rodeo, fried rattlesnake is available for those interested in tasting it.

Arts and crafts are also a big part of the event, offering plenty of activities for children.

It's not too late to catch a glimpse of the rattlesnakes.

The rodeo action will continue Sunday.
