The Harleysville Hank Groundhog Day Extravanganza on Saturday gave the hometown favorite groundhog the chance to beat Punxsutawney Phil by a day with his prediction.

The crowd of about 250 went on to a breakfast of scrapple and other Pennsylvania Dutch treats and enjoyed fellowship and musical entertainment with thoughts of spring.
