The village of Unadilla is famed for its annual Groundhog Day celebration. The event draws so many people that the community’s population of 311 more than doubles for the day. The celebration takes place on Unadilla’s historic main street on the first Saturday in February.

The rodent at the center of the fun is Unadilla Bill, a stuffed groundhog who looks for his shadow each year. The critter was named after former Lt. Gov. William Nichol, who issued a proclamation in 1988 designating Unadilla as the Groundhog Capital of Nebraska.
