The annual Waynoka Rattlesnake Round-Up began in the 1940s when area ranchers attempted to rid the surrounding ranch land of rattlesnakes, which were a threat to their cattle. The ranchers banded together and began hunting Western Diamondback rattlesnakes during a yearly event. That event, which has become a local ritual, now draws thousands of participants and has expanded into a larger festival. For more information, call 580-541-4169.
