February 20th  is Hoodie-Hoo day and will be observed in downtown Clearfield, PA.

At high noon, citizens of Clearfield are asked to go outdoors and yell “Hoodie-Hoo” to chase winter and make ready for spring, one month away. No, really. I’m serious. It’s a regional holiday … apparently.

This Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20 is your chance to celebrate Hoodie-Hoo day in Downtown Clearfield. Hoodie-Hoo day is a day (or two) set aside for winter-weary people who want to chase winter away.

Most people use Hoodie-Hoo day as a way to cure cabin fever, but others believe the Hoodie-Hoo is a being living in the forest. They believe the  noise surmounted on Hoodie-Hoo Day summons the groundhog to wake him up and try again.

Everyone is encouraged to attend a Hoodie-Hoo celebration and try your luck at awakening the groundhog. For more information on local events contact Jane Lee Yare @ 814-765-4496 or John Spencer @ 814-765-6023.
