We visited this town and park last year and were surprised to find out the ceremony was not held in town as depicted in the movie “Groundhog Day”, but in this park on the outskirts of town.  A few locals we spoke to said the filmmakers wanted the okay to film the movie in town but then never filmed it on location.

Because of Phil's notoriety, there are many things in town that carry his name, such as names of stores and the many groundhog statues decorated and place around the town.
