Missing groundhog shows up in the nick of time
Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015 — “Should we actually attach a mustache to him, or have him holding up one of the paper ones we have left over as props from our wedding?”
This is the kind of absurd question I found myself asking as one of the organizers for the Groundhog Fever Festival last year.
My wife and I were two of a group of eight who started the festival two years ago. The event, much to everyone’s surprise, was a hit.
Way more people than we expected showed up to the festival the first year, and we were a little unprepared. The second year, we had a better idea of what to expect and tweaked the layout and format of it to better suit a larger crowd.
