Whigham 'Rattlesnake Roundup' coming up next weekend

WHIGHAM, GA (WALB) - People in Whigham are gearing up for the annual Rattlesnake Roundup next weekend.

There will also be arts and crafts, food vendors, rock climbing, and zip lining. But the stars of the day will be the rattlesnakes.

Visitors can see and learn about them and other reptiles at educational shows throughout the day.

"Its just a demonstration of those different snakes and particularly teaching the kids, these are what you need to stay away from. They're venomous, you don't need to be associated with those, and the good things and good qualities of them," said Dave Ulmer with Whigham Community Club.

The roundup will begin on Saturday, January 30 at 8 a.m. at the Whigham Rattlesnake Grounds.

The grounds are located off U.S. Hwy. 84 in East Whigham.

Admission is $2 per person, and parking is free.
