State police remind Groundhog Day visitors about security

State police remind Groundhog Day visitors about security 

By: WJAC Web Staff 

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. -- State police and local officials are reminding visitors about rules, regulations and security surrounding the annual Groundhog Day festivities in Jefferson County. Punxsutawney Phil will make his annual prognostication at Gobbler's Knob just after 7:20 a.m. Sunday. 

The Pennsylvania tourism bureau is expecting 25,000 people to be on hand for the events. With all those people expected in and around the Punxsutawney area, police are reminding everyone to be respectful and patient with others so everyone can have a good time. 

Police said alcohol is prohibited at the event, with a zero tolerance rule in effect. Police said visitors shouldn't attempt to bring alcoholic beverages to the Gobbler's Knob area and that prohibiting underage drinking will be strictly enforced. Police said as a safety procedure, all bags will be searched prior to anyone getting on the buses to be transported to the event grounds. 

Only motorists with parking passes for Gobbler's Knob will be able to access roads around and near that area, police said. All travel routes and loading areas will be marked. Additionally, there are new traffic patterns for those with parking passes and those instructions are with the passes, police said. 6 News will have live coverage of the Groundhog Day events beginning at 7:15 a.m. on WJAC-TV's sub channel ME-TV and also streaming live on www.wjactv.com.
