Howdy folks - I'm Balzac Billy, and this is my home on the Internet. Thanks so much for stopping by.
I am known as the "Prairie Prognosticator" here in beautiful Balzac, Alberta.
Every year on February 2, I pop my head out of my burrow, from a long winter's nap, to determine whether we are going to have a long winter or an early spring!
The burrow at Blue Grass Nursery Centre is a perfect fit, so I've decided to keep my home right where it is! I'll see you on Tuesday, February 2nd for the 2016 Annual Groundhog Day Pancake Breakfast.
Come to our next event - Stampede Breakfast at CrossIron Mills. July 11, 2016 from 9am-11am.
BALZAC BILLY PREDICTED AN EARLY SPRING!
The 2015 breakfast was a great success, full of delicious food, an entertaining band, wonderful volunteers and sponsors and over 200 attendees! Fortunately, when I awoke that morning and popped out of my burrow I did not see my shadow which meant we were in for an early spring! That makes it TWO years in a row, I'm on a roll!
Congratulations to Kayla, Luciana and Angelina, our 2015 Balzac Billy colouring contest winners!
