Will we have a short winter or will it be another six weeks until spring? Only Staten Island's CHUCK knows and he ain't telling until Groundhog Day, Feb. 2nd! Join Staten Island CHUCK in a ceremony presented by Time Warner Cable's East Region/NYC, along with notable public figures from around the City (Mayor Bloomberg is scheduled to be there), for his much anticipated prediction on Wednesday, Feb. 2nd at the Staten Island Zoo. Gates open 7 a.m., Chuck's prediction is at 7:30 a.m. Chuck will also be making appearances throughout the day. The ceremony is a free event.

"We are very thankful to Time Warner Cable for sponsoring this year's WEATHER PREDICTING CELEBRATION! Their sponsorship not only includes the Groundhog Day festivities but an educational program as well, allowing the Staten Island Zoo to visit schools to teach students about the science of meteorology, facts about SI Chuck, and the legend of groundhogs. Time Warner Cable's generosity gives us the opportunity to make Groundhog Day a teaching opportunity in the next couple of months, "said Ken Mitchell, Interim Executive Director of the Staten Island Zoo.

Following the ceremony, a special breakfast will be held with Chuck in his honor! Breakfast with Chuck is $10/person; five dollars for kids under 5. Pre-registration is required. For further information, please contact the Zoo at 718-442-3101, ext. 14.

Handwarmers, noisemakers, and hot beverages will be given out by Time Warner Cable's East RegionNYC.
