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 in February for the Annual Groundhog Day Pancake Breakfast.
Come to our next event - Stampede Breakfast at CrossIron Mills. July 6th 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!
