First Freer Rattlesnake Roundup
This event first began in 1965 as the Freer Oil-O-Rama. As it still does, the local chamber of commerce sponsors this event. The first event had displays of oil field equipment, a dance, a Miss Oil-O-Rama contest and more. By 1968, the Freer Jaycees began to co-sponsor the event which was now becoming known as the Rattlesnake Roundup. They moved from the gym to the Rotary Park and then to the Freer Cactus Corral. Other venues have been used over the years. In 1985, the Chamber once again took sole sponsorship of the vent. The Roundup is also a time for local non-profit groups to earn money by selling food and items for their projects. In 1993, the legislature designated Freer as home to the "Official Rattlesnake Roundup of Texas."
