Groundhog Day In Punxsutawney Will Be A Virtual Event In 2021


The annual Groundhog Day celebration in Punxsutawney will be going virtual next year.

The Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club released a statement this week saying that Punxsutawney Phil "will be making his live annual Prognostication from Gobbler’s Knob this coming Groundhog Day February 2nd 2021, but it has been determined that there will not be any in person attendance or guests on the grounds as the potential Covid risks to overcome are too great."

The statement also said they are developing numerous live internet, website and virtual events and interactions that will take the place of the traditional in person events.
