French Creek, W.Va. (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
West Virginia State Wildlife Centers official weather prognosticator, French Creek Freddie, is poised to forecast the onset of spring on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013 at 10 a.m. French Creek Freddie has undertaken his annual ritual at the West Virginia State Wildlife Center since 1978.
Celebrating Groundhog Day at the Wildlife Center has become a very popular event, said Wildlife Center Biologist Gene Thorn. This year were hoping for a huge crowd to help us celebrate and witness Freddies annual prediction because the event falls on Saturday when the kids are out of school.
In addition to the pageantry of seeing if Freddie sees his shadow, visitors can listen to poems and songs, enjoy refreshments, and compete in various wood chuckin contests.
