April 14-17 the 35 annual Apache Rattlesnake Festival will be held for the last time. The Apache city council and townspeople are in search of someone new to run the Rattlesnake festival . In 1983 when the Rattle snake festival started it was just a few people who thought it would be a good idea to control the rattlesnake population and bring them in for safety shows and butchering. Hopefully they can find someone new to run the festival so the generations to come can experience and learn about rattlesnake safety and all of the fun carnival rides and good food that has been enjoyed by friends and family for many years.
