You’ve caught a rattlesnake in Sweetwater.
Okay, maybe you didn’t catch one yourself, but you at least experienced the event where over 20,000 pounds of rattlesnakes were captured. And as if the snakes weren’t enough, you stuck around for the glitz and glamour of the Miss Snake Charmer Pageant and, wait for it, a snake eating competition.
You’ve tied up and partied at Hell’s Gate.
When the Texas heat becomes unbearable, you’d better find yourself out on the water. If you’re looking for a party on the water, you’d better get out to Hell’s Gate. Every summer thousands of Texas’ most rowdy cruise into the cove, tie their boats together, and party like nobody’s business. Bonus points if you stuck around for Red Bull’s Cliff Diving World Series.
