February 1st to 4th
Once again, Woodstock, Illinois will be hosting their annual celebration for the "overgrown rodent" prognosticator (as Bill Murray called him). Woodstock is where the movie "Groundhog Day" was filmed.
If you are in the Chicago area the early part of February, come on out.
There will be walking tours of the movie sites, a plague dedication, Groundhog Dance, movie symposiums, a "Lighting of the Groundhog", chili cookoff, and movie showing on the big screen in the movie theater where Murray did his Clint Eastwood impersonation.
Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
