Celebrate Groundhog Day

  • 3101 Burritt Drive
  • Huntsville, AL 35801

On February 2, 1887, Groundhog Day is celebrated for the first time at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Groundhog Day is a day to take everything a little less seriously and break up the winter monotony.

Celebrate this tradition at Burritt on the Mountain with Alabama’s true weather forecasting groundhog Smith Lake Jake. According to legend, if Smith Lake Jake sees his shadow, he’ll return to his den and winter will continue for another six weeks. If he doesn’t see his shadow, spring will arrive early.

Hot cocoa, cookies and Groundhog themed crafts add to the fun. Groundhog Jake, Seer of Seers, Weather Prophet Extraordinary will make his prediction at 2:45pm. Photo op with Jake during the event.
