Groundhog carnival

The first Carnival, which began in the winter of 1974, is a carnival that takes place over several days and includes activities of all kinds for all ages.

The carnival dates coincide with Groundhog’s Day on February 2. According to tradition, on this day, one must observe the entrance to the burrow of a groundhog. If she emerges and does not see her shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will end soon. On the other hand, if she sees her shadow because the weather is bright and clear, she will be frightened and will take refuge again in her hole, and the winter will continue for six more weeks.

The Carnival is organized by a group of citizens and you will find details on their Facebook page:
