History of the Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo
|Eastern Diamondback rattlesnakes have been rattling since the dawn of time, but they have been a main attraction in Opp, Alabama for the past 53 years. Mr. J.P. Jones was the mastermind behind this small-town, community event. He, along with the Opp Jaycees, first organized this event as a fun-filled, family friendly weekend with snake shows, arts and crafts, and good food.After several years, the rodeo has grown to include other activities such as beauty pageants, the Rattlin’ 100 car race held at the South Alabama Speedway, snake races,|
|buck-dancing contests, children’s activities, karoke contests, musical entertainment throughout the day and the most popular Rattlin’ Country Concert featuring Nashville Country Music Artists (Easton Corbin) Family Force 5, Hawk Nelson, Building 429, as well as local groups. The Rattlin’ country concert is held on Saturday evening.|
