As a result of some last minute talks between the city and the Tri-State Zoological Park, the annual local growndhog day festivities will take place Thursday morning. The event has been held on the downtown mall for several years, however it appeared as though it might not come together this year. Late Wednesday morning however, Cumberland Mayor Brian Grim confirmed that all of the details have been worked out and the event, featuring Western Maryland Murray will be held. Once again WCBC will provide live reports from the event.
