Jimmy the Groundhog will make an appearance at Sun Prairie’s 67th annual Groundhog Day Prognostication ceremony Feb. 2.
Boasting a nearly 80 percent accuracy rate, Jimmy will make his prediction about the length of this winter at sunrise.
Mayor Jon Freund will begin the ceremony with declarations at 6:45 a.m., and State Representative Gary Hebl will present a Gubernatorial Proclamation.
Long time handler Jerry Hahn will accompany Jimmy for the last time before his retirement later this year.
Downtown Sun Prairie businesses like market Street Diner, Beans ‘n Cream Coffeehouse and the Nitty Gritty will be offering Groundhog Day specials. Jimmy the Groundhog memorabilia will be available at Prairie Flowers & Gifts.
