The Brownwood Coliseum was packed all day Saturday for day two of the Lone Star Fair & Expo and Rattlesnake Roundup.

The main attraction was the snake pit where many gathered around to watch two people do several stunts. Kerry Campbell from the reality show, American Hoggers was also at the event signing autographs. Daredevil Jackie Bibby was also part of the event while he does some of his signature stunts. Bibby currently holds five world records and has had twelve serious bites, one of which he almost lost a leg from.

In addition to the fun, snake handlers gave an hour educational presentation about how dangerous rattlesnakes can be and what do if you were to get bit.

The last day of the three-day event is Sunday.
