CAPE COD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Forget Groundhog Day, the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce is upping the game with 'Quahog Day,' where Doug the Quahog predicts how many days of sunshine the Cape will get over the summer on June 21, the first day of the season. This year's Quahog Day fell on Tuesday, as Doug predicted the Cape would receive 85 days of sunshine following the solstice.
The CCCC published a video promoting the holiday, revealing Doug's entourage and the events leading up to this year's Quahog Day.
As Doug's sidekick Johnny Quahog explains, the holiday began after the CCCC found themselves bombarded with questions about the Cape's weather during the summer. But Quahog says another great time to visit the Cape is in the fall, when the water and weather is still relatively warm.
The CCCC says that this year marks the 14th annual Quahog Day, something that has become a 'rite of passage' for residents heading into the summer.
