The Morris Rattlesnake Roundup is much more than just a bunch of buzztails in a bag.
In fact, it's a full weekend of food, music, softball and fun.The hunt itself runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. But the snake pit stays open, and the fun goes on through Sunday.
A one-pitch softball tournament, usually with 16 to 18 teams, begins early Saturday and runs all day. Refreshments both days include hamburgers and hot dogs, hand-cut french fries, ice cream and soda, and chicken barbecue dinners from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
A huge flea market runs both days. Harold Benjamin and the Country Boys take the stage from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and Burning Hills takes over from 3 to 7 p.m. Fireworks light up the skies at dusk.
On Sunday, White River performs at noon.-- Star-Gazette
