Woolly Worms, the Punxsutawney Phil of winter

LEWISBURG –  They are wiggly, wormy, and woolly and they predict the severity of winter. We’ll talking about celebrating the woolly worm. The annual Woolly Worm Festival kicks off Saturday, October 14 at 9:30am in Hufnagle Park.

The festival begins with  music form the Lewisburg High School Band, and at 12:30 pm the Winter Weather Prognostication Ceremony starts. Guests will see worm readers measure, weigh, and analyze the furry little friends in an attempt to predict this winter’s weather forecast. The event also features Woolly Worm races, kids activities, and food.


The festival is coordinated by the Kiwanis Club of Buffalo Valley and the proceeds benefit the charities supported by the club. You can find out more information by calling 570-594-469.
