49th Rattlesnake Festival on 10/17/2015 in San Antonio, Florida

Untitled 1
Another summer has come and gone. And that can only mean one thing in eastern Pasco County, Florida, it is time to once again remind you that the 2015 San Antonio Rattlesnake Festival and Run , sponsored by the rotary Club of San Antonio, will take place on October 17th of 2015 from 9 AM to 5 PM.  San Antonio, Florida is just to the north of Tampa and a few miles east of Interstate 75 in the hills of Pasco County on State Road 52. The festival takes place in the village park in the center of town. You cannot miss it!

This is a very popular and unique event. And this year will be the 49th year that it has been held in our little corner of Florida. Something you are not likely to see in Boston, Indianapolis, or Boise. Of course the festival encompasses more than rattlesnakes. There is plenty for the whole family to enjoy. Some of the events this year are:

  • Snake Show

Oh my.. I would have expected a Water Moccasin Festival in Florida instead of a Rattlesnake festival.  The list of planned activities sounds like a great time to be had!  Wonderful localism post.

We have lots of pygmy rattlers here. Not the bigger ones you see out west. :)
