squirrel_facing_straightYep, Brevard once again proclaims itself epi-center of  White Squirrel Day (AKA Groundhog Day) festivities. – For the third year in a row, Brevard’s beloved ambassador white squirrel, Pisgah Pete, will take the helm at the City of Brevard’s Feb. 2nd festivities.  Our cute furry mascot will outshine his world famous weather-prognosticating counterpart, Punxsatawny Phil, by not only predicting whether there will be six more weeks of winter, but also answering one or two questions from audience members. “Pisgah Pete is picking up the slack where, let’s admit it, Punxsatawny Phil has fallen far short,” said Ann Sharpsteen, one of the organizers. “Phil is just a one-trick pony and our beloved Pisgah Pete is so much cuter.”
Brevard Top Hat DonMayor Jimmy Harris will read a proclamation memorializing the day as “White Squirrel Day.” WSQL radio personality Don DeBiase will officiate the ceremony (top hat and all) during a live broadcast on the town’s “White Squirrel” radio station (102.1 FM, 1240 AM).

Yep, Brevardians take Groundhog Day (err, White Squirrel Day) seriously.
“It’s going to be a fun time, just like it was last year. We want to invite the whole town to come out and join us,” said Lisa Patty Abbey, another of the event’s organizers.
