Much better than expected event. Dress warm and wear boots d/t mud. Event starts at 2 am. Had a great fireworks show. Town makes the most it can out of the event. More to do in Dubois nearby. Good breweries and wine trails

I loved visiting on Groundhog Day! We arrived early, and were on the bus by 3:30am. When we got to Gobbler's Knob, the singing and dancing were in full swing. Local bands, fun songs, local dancers, corny jokes, a marraige proposal, introduction of the Groundhog King and Queen, local talent show winners, and Miss Pennsylvania kept us entertained while we...

My husband and I can crossed this off our bucket list. We joined the hundreds on groundhog day. I love the town and the event was very organized and it was a fun experience. Couple of helpful hints, you don't have to get there at 3 am, you can see pretty good from on top of the hill. Fireworks were... More

This was first for us and we are in our 70's we had a great time. Yes it was a little cold and yes you do need to get up very early, say 3:00 am but hey it Ground Hog Day.

We came for Ground Hog Day 2016. It was so much fun; the buses provide great transportation, the bomb fire is big, the entertainment all morning is a blast, the fireworks are amazing, and the ceremony is a hoot.

We went to see Phil on Ground Hog's Day and it was one of our must memorable trips anywhere in the world. It was cold so bundle up but it was like a party for 10,000 of your friends. There were bands, sing alongs, comedy and the most spectacular fireworks we have ever seen. The fireworks encompassed the entire sky... More

For those with a bucket list this is a must see especially on Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day is when you are best to visit for it is when a lot of action takes place, whether its fireworks, dancing and entertainment. There is so much excitement that you don't even think about the weather and of course it's where Punxsutawney Phil... More

Bob Young is awesome and should be part of the Punxsy Phil Inner Circle! What a great ambassador for Phil and Phyllis. I met Bob on a visit, 2 days post the Phil prognostication. Bobs kind nature and welcome to the park made for a great experience. My original plan was to snap a few quick snapshots and was turned... More

My wife and I ventured for the annual Groundhog day festivities. We flew into Pittsbugh, PA and rented a car to drive to DuBois, PA, where there are many hotel chains and a 35min drive to Punxutawny, PA. There is a schedule of events created by the GroundHog Club that keeps everyone entertained. There are walking tours, hay rides around... More

Made the trek to Gobbers Knob/Punxsutawney to see Punxsutawney Phil and all the festivities. Stayed in Indiana, PA at a reasonable rate and made the trip in. Parked at the Wal-Mart and caught the bus ($5 for adults - free for kids) to Gobbler's Knob. The Wal-Mart parking lot (not a big parking lot (one of three pick up points... More
