At The Rattlesnake Races: Weekly Winners

In South Texas we have this fantastic annual event called, Rattlesnake Races. It’s a huge event with sponsors, cold beer, good food, fun people (characters), games, craft booths and yes, rattlesnakes that race. We took the kids yesterday and we are all a tad sunburned and exhausted, but it was soooo much fun!

Here are a few of my favorite shots:

  8. Hello Potato on a stick fans, allow me to introduce myself my name is Olmer Serpas I am a representative of Velma’s Treats. I’m sorry to inform you that this year we were not able to please your potato needs due to the fact that the Rattle snake races committee banded our product from their market. We are sorry for the inconvenience. If you are craving a potato on a stick you could visit us at Mary’s Flea Market in Alfred, Texas on the 1st weekend of every month. We also attend various events year round you could e-mail me at for dates and locations.
