That’s right! This Sunday, February 2 is the big day. Will groundhog seers see a shadow or won’t they? Today, most people know about the legend of the groundhog: if he sees his shadow on this day, expect six more weeks of wintry weather; if he doesn’t, then spring weather is right around the corner. How to celebrate this special day? Make the hour-and-45 minute drive from Georgian Sands in Wasaga Beach to Wiarton to watch Canada’s most famous groundhog Wiarton Willie made his prediction. Wiarton’s putting on a Saturday fair with a midway and early-morning Sunday fireworks just before Willie emerges from his den. Or you could gather friends, order in takeout and watch that classic 1993 movie, Groundhog Day. Happy Groundhog Day!
