Pennsylvania Attractions / Landmarks / Places > Punxsutawney Email This Bookmark Print
Celebrated annually, visitors gather in Punxsutawney for a weather forecast from internationally-recognized weather expert, Punxsutawney Phil - a groundhog.

On February 2, Phil comes out of his burrow on Gobbler's Knob - in front of thousands of followers from all over the world - to predict the weather for the rest of winter. Tradition has it that if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

Festivities also include the Woodchuck Whittle Carving Show, the Souvenir Show & Sale, Phil?s Wedding Chapel, Hay Ride Town Tours, Groundhog Day in the Park and much more.
