"Every day is Groundhog Day in Woodstock, IL!" reads the official motto of the city's Groundhog Days committee, which dedicates most of the winter to providing walking tours of filming locations, hosting Groundhog Day-related screenings, guest speakers, and trivia contests, and, of course, reenacting the film's annual groundhog ceremony on the actual holiday (using a descendant of the one seen in the movie, no less).
Even when it's not Groundhog Day—or even winter, as on the rainy summer's day we visited—it's still Groundhog Day, as seemingly every corner of Woodstock's perfectly preserved town square bears a plaque commemorating its often-fleeting moment of screen time.
