SAN PATRICIO COUNTY (Kiii News) -

Old San Patricio was turned into a snake pit this weekend for the 41st annual World Championship Rattlesnake Races. Those brave enough to enter had to interact with their snake and try and get them to the finish line first. Among the crowd we found Melissa Breckenridge from Fort Worth. Her talent? She not only handles snakes, but see just how many she can fit in her mouth! Melissa says everyone always asks her how she got into the hobby. She said, "They ask how it tastes? Every time, they want to know. Its real gritty, dirty, and doesn't taste good but it's a crowd pleaser and its fun to do." Sunday was the final day for the event.
