Groundhog Day 2015 Kicks Off in Woodstock, Illinois

This has been a yearly event here at where the famous movie "Groundhog Day" was filmed as it stepped in for the more famous Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.  Always a great time without the crowds in Pennsylvania.

It kicks off today with the annual Awakening of the Groundhog at the Woodstock Opera House (Hotel Pennsylvanian in the movie where the other two stayed and where the slapping scene was filmed and where Bill Murray jumped out of the belfry.

Afterwards, Woodstock Willie will pose for pictures and then there will be a "Groundhog Day" movie trivia activity next door in the Stage Left Canteen.

Always a Good Time.  --RoadDog
