Plans set for annual Prognostication by Jimmy
City ceremony planned for 6:50 a.m.
The city’s annual groundhog prognostication is scheduled to take place at sunrise on Feb. 2 in Cannery Square Plaza.
Jimmy the Groundhog will be at the Prognostication ceremony in Downtown Sun Prairie to share his estimate on when spring will arrive.
The city’s Business Improvement District chairperson, Bruce Sprague, confirmed that Jimmy will be ushered in to the square by limo and fire trucks at 6:50 a.m.
Local restaurants will be serving a variety of Jimmy-related goodies like Jimmy chocolates and a Jimmy-
themed beer, and a buffet breakfast is scheduled at the Market Street Diner and Bakery, Sprague said.
Sprague said the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce handed over reins to the Prognostication to the BID this year and more details on the day’s events will be released when they are finalized.
Jimmy wishes Jerry would quit waking him up as this is High Hibernation Season!
Jimmy had his annual physical and passed with flying colors! He also made an appearance at City Hall to meet the mayor! Check out photos here!
