Ground Frog Day

Are you looking for something interesting and new to do tomorrow?

Why not head out for Ground Frog Day.

Everyone talks about Groundhog Day, but the Northwest has their very own version of this day.

Tomorrow, Saturday January 30th, the Northwest Frognostication Ceremony will take place in Snohomish, WA.

Much like Punxsutawney Phil predicts the weather for the next eight weeks, so does Washington's very own Snohomish Slew the bullfrog. And Slew gets his prediction out three days before Phil.

Snohomish Slew, who also goes by the title of Meteorologist Frognosticator extraordinaire, will come out tomorrow to make a prediction if the Northwest will be enjoying spring soon or another eight weeks of winter.

His predictions are of course announced by his scribes.

The festivities begin at Ferguson Park at 10:30 AM. This years GroundFrog Day will also feature a park bench dedication that honors Daryl Bertholet. Bertholet was the founder of Ground Frog Day five years ago, but passed away in July.

Following the weather forcast and the dedication ceremony, the festivities will continue at the National Guard Armory for lessons on living green, vendor booths, games, demonstrations and live entertainment.
