Back by popular demand, Mississauga Celebration Square is hosting the second annual
Groundhog Day Marathon on Saturday, February 2.
Between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., watch the 1993 cult classic Groundhog Day on the
Squares outdoor digital screens. Pay homage to the beloved weather-predicting groundhog
and the comic genius of Bill Murray while skating on the Squares outdoor ice rink. The
film will run continually throughout the day, with show times beginning every two hours.
The public can also vote on whether or not they think Wiarton Willie (Canadas iconic
groundhog) will see his shadow or not. The poll launches today on Mississauga Celebration Squares Facebook page, where the results of Wiarton
Willie weather prediction will also be posted February 2.
