[ARCHIVED] MT Recreation Set to Host 3rd Annual Groundhog Day Celebration Tomorrow!

Groundhog Day 2023

The Manheim Township Recreation and Park Planning Department is hosting their 3rd Annual Groundhog Day Celebration tomorrow (Thursday, February 2nd). The event is open to the public and begins promptly at 7 am at the Carriage House at Stauffer Mansion (1241 Lititz Pike, Lancaster, PA).

The event is family friendly, and free for all to attend.

There will be arts and crafts, hot chocolate, marshmallow roasting, face painting, light refreshments, music, and an appearance and photo opportunities with the Manheim Township Recreation Groundhog mascot.

Last year, M.T. Parker, a life-like groundhog plush toy, saw his shadow and the prognostication called for 6 more weeks of winter.  

“M.T. Parker is deep in hibernation, but rest assured he will be ready for his big day,” said Manheim Township Recreation Director, Matt Stopa.“ The Parks and Recreation Department is excited to bring the Groundhog Day Celebration back to Manheim Township. Join your neighbors and stop by for this memorable event!”

Guests are encouraged to arrive early, with the prognostication occurring at sunrise (7:13 am).
