Saturday, February 4 10am-4pm. Look for Punxsutawney Phyllis in Aurora’s shops and eateries and get chances to win “Aurora Bucks,” cash to spend all year in our businesses. Fun for families, singles or couples of all ages, there is over $300 to win and the “hogs” are not all that difficult to find. When you arrive in town, pick up your pink “map guide” at the shops and begin your search. Find as many ground hogs as you have time for and get a chance for each member of your group, kids count too! (Drawing is at 4pm but you need not be present to win.)
Pheasant Run Winery will be offering food and wine during the afternoon with live music for you to relax from your searching.
