Question: What town in Texas is home to the “World’s Largest Rattlesnake Roundup”?

Answer: Sweetwater, about 40 miles west of Abilene. The annual event, which was first held in the 1950s as a way to keep the local rattlesnake population under control, has grown into a multi-day festival that includes a parade, a gun and knife show, and competitions for eating snakes and catching the longest snake.
