Quincy, Calif. celebrates Groundhog Fever Day at the Plumas County Courthouse grounds. The fever has taken the area by storm ever since Punxsutawney Phil's supposed cousin, "Chuck Wood" made his appearance at Quincy Courthouse steps several years at the ago on Groundhog Day. Chuck didn't see his shadow when he popped out at the Groundhog Fever Festival, thus signifying an early onset of spring. James Wilson and Johnny Mansell (left photo) trace Chuck's colorful history before the critter made his appearance.

Quincy Revival Committee launched the festival with much fervor. It includes a chili cook-off, Wine & Beer Tasting, a date auction, Shadow Shuffle, Mustache Contest, Firetruck Lift Rides, Ice Sculpting and a Kids Zone.
