This year, the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club located in Pennsylvania continues their extravagant tradition to celebrate the annual holiday. Established in 1887, the organization held its year 2020 events from January 31st until February 2nd.

Restaurants sponsored the event, and specialists in knitting and weaving worked together to create an event that allowed participants to experiment with fiber works. Historic and natural locations were visited by locals and tourists as part of the celebration this year.

“It is wonderful that the community and those outside of the area came together to practice a long held tradition. It shows unity in society,” said Anna Bashore, a senior at Hidden Valley High School.

The organization in Pennsylvania plans to continue the traditional celebrations for years to come.
