In the USA, they have their Memorial Day weekend the week after we have our Victoria Day weekend in Canada. On the weekend following the Memorial Day weekend, Lake Washington hosts “The Mississippi Snake Grabbing Rodeo”.
They catch snakes in the lake, bring them back to shore, measure them and count them. Some are poisonous but they catch all of them, poisonous or not. And they’re teaching the kids how to tell the difference.
