Charlevoix community celebrates 5th annual Groundhog Shadow Fest

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- People from Charlevoix and surrounding communities celebrated the 5th annual Groundhog Shadow Fest in downtown Charlevoix on Saturday.

People got to enjoy Saturday's fresh snow fall, a pancake breakfast, kid’s games, disk golf and a beer tent.

This year the event also had a soup contest where nine local businesses participated.

Organizers say this is a great way to bring people back downtown during the winter and shop at local businesses.

“We have such a strong sense of community and we have been through a lot lately,” said Maureen Owens event co-chair. “It's just brought us tighter together and we like to get out have fun and embrace the winter. Our town is gorgeous every season.”

7&4's storm team meteorologist Joe Charlevoix was also at the event.

Joe was honored in the opening ceremony and became an official honorary citizen of Charlevoix.
