The time has finally arrived. the 48th Annual Mangum Rattlesnake Derby will kick off this Friday, April 26th, and last three full days of fun. Early weather reports suggest that the weather will be warm and sunny. Granted, weather can change from day-to-day, hour-to-hour, or even minute-to-minute. However, we are optimistic that this weekend will be a huge success.
Today, we are busily getting the sleepy town of Mangum ready to host over 30,000 people. Vendor spaces are being marked. The Snake Pit is being assembled. Plans are being finalized. Luckily, after 48 years, we know that our hard work and effort will come together and present a final product to you that we hope that you enjoy.
Hopefully, this website is useful to you in order for you to find what you are looking for. However, if you have questions about the weekend, you may ask us through this website. In addition, during the weekend, you can find a person in a red vest. Typically, they either know the answer or can point you to where the answer is.
We hope that everyone comes and have a safe, fun weekend.
