It was a momentous occasion for two lucky little winners who took home the top hat and crown for the Little Mr. and Miss Groundhog competition at the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center.
Winning the title of Little Mr. Groundhog was Giovanni Gigliotti, son of Mike and Heather Gigliotti of Punxsy.
Winning Little Miss. Groundhog was Maggie Guidice, daughter of Mike and Melanie Guidice of Punxsy.
Giovanni and Maggie each received a $50 gift card for Walmart and took home a bag filled with goodies from the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center.
