Groundhog Day - Meet Boat Show Bill!

Friday, February 2

Meet Boat Show Bill, Punxsutawney Phil’s Cousin

Phil might be looking for his shadow in Pennsylvania but is the weather there really a good indicator of what we can expect in the Pacific Northwest? Instead, ask Phil’s cousin, our own groundhog, Boat Show Bill. He will be roaming the halls at the show on February 2 and making his predictions for spring and summer boating.

Groundhog Day Scavenger Hunt

Find a photo of Bill Murray (there will be one in each hall), star of the 1993 classic movie “Groundhog Day” for a chance to win a whimsically curated Groundhog Day-themed gift basket! If you find Bill, stop by the info booth before you leave. In exchange for his whereabouts staff will issue participants an enter-to-win form for a Groundhog Day-themed gift basket.

Inside this humorous basket, you’ll find:

  • A Blu-ray of the 1993 comedy, Groundhog Day, the story of Phil Connors (Bill Murray), a cynical television weatherman covering the annual Groundhog Day event who becomes trapped in a time loop, forcing him to relive February 2 repeatedly
  • Groundhog Day – The Game by Funko Games (Including a Punxsutawney Phil Pop! figure!)
  • An adorably groundhog plush toy
  • $50 Gift Card to Fisheries Supply
  • Two 10 oz Yeti lowball ramblers
  • A 5L Drybag for your next boating adventure
  • 4 Tickets to the 2025 Seattle Boat Show, so you can relive all the fun again next year!
