This Weekend

They call it a "snake hunt," but only a tiny percentage of those who will come to southern Cameron County this weekend are pursuing reptiles. Sinnemahoning Sportsmen's Association once again has a full schedule in place for the popular Sinnemahoning Snake Hunt on Saturday and Sunday.

The organization is teaming with Keystone Reptile Club to present a program that blends entertainment, relaxation and education about the often misunderstood rattlesnake and other native species.

Registered, licensed hunters will bring captured snakes to the festival grounds, where Keystone representatives will be holding demonstrations and lectures throughout the weekend.

The club will open its "snake pit" for children at 10 am, 1 pm and 4 pm each day. Youngsters will be able to come into the pen to handle and observe the non-poisonous snakes, under guidance, during the designated times.

Club members say all of the snakes captured during the organized hunt will be returned to the wilds.

Saturday's events include a "snake race" for those age 9 and younger at 2 pm, with a "snake challenge" for those 10 and older to follow.

A dance with live music will be held on Saturday evening.

On Sunday, the "fake snake hunt" for children will be held at noon.

Shortly after 2 pm on Sunday, the Ultimate Snake Hunter trophy will be awarded to the individual bringing the three different species of snakes with greatest total length. Other awards will also be presented.

Drawing for the fund-raising raffle is set for 3 pm.

A number of vendors have registered for the weekend, selling food and beverages, souvenirs and various items related to reptiles and the outdoors. There is no admission fee. Camping sites for tents and mobile units will be available.
