Grand Prairie Friends hosting Rattlesnake Run in Urbana


Rattlesnake Master is actually the name of a plant that has a long list of legends attached…and is the plant that gives the annual Rattlesnake Master Run it’s name. Surprisingly, Central Illinois is no longer home to real rattlesnakes, but they did slither here a couple hundred years ago.
