Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – The Pennsylvania Tourist Board is bringing the fun of Gobbler’s Knob to homes around the world with a variety of activities celebrating Pennsylvania’s top tipster, Punxsutawney Phil, as he takes the stage Wednesday, Feb. 2, to make his prediction of the arrival of spring at the 136th Groundhog Day feast.

Thousands of people travel to Punxsutawney each February to see Phil come out of hibernation to seek his shade and predict either a quick spring or six more weeks of wintry weather. The fun of this quintessentially Pennsylvanian tradition can be enjoyed anywhere with a collection of craft projects, food and drink recipes, and more curated by the Pennsylvania Office of Tourism. Watch Phil make his prediction on the direct while engaging with family and friends in activities such as:

“Whether you want six more weeks of snow or can’t wait to hear that spring is on the horizon, we want you to join Phil in the original Groundhog Day fun,” said the Department of Community Development. and Economics (DCED) Assistant Secretary for Marketing, Tourism and Film, Carrie Fischer Lepore. “This age-old tradition is part of what makes us a uncommon commonwealth in the best possible way. We encourage anyone who can’t be at the Knob at sunrise to get into the spirit of Groundhog Day with a Phil-inspired snack, craft or cocktail.
