Everyone needs to go ONCE! It was hilarious. The fireworks were breathtaking through the snow. Everyone is having fun and no one is taking themselves too seriously (hard to do wearing a rodent hat). Great friendly folks. We had a blast!

Beautiful area and perfect for Groundhog Day event. Natural amphitheater design is exactly suited for ability to see all the activities no matter where you stand!

Weather factors definitely impact your overall enjoyment of this fun event. With temperatures of 10 degrees and windchill of below zero, standing your ground for 4 hours, if you arrive at 3:30 am, is very masochistic. If you choose to move around and huddle near...More

Snow pants would be brilliant. It's freezing and people start showing up between 3 and 4am. Better to wear something that you can take off if you're too hot, than to not have enough layers on and freeze your butt off!
