Potomac Phil

Dupont Circle’s beloved taxidermied groundhog will make an appearance in this year’s Pride Parade.

Potomac Phil — the stuffed woodchuck that Dupont residents consult each year on Groundhog Day — will be hoisted from the top of a Pride Parade float made specially for him.

“He’ll be on top of an SUV that will be totally decorated to look like the Popemobile.” says Aaron DeNu, co-founder of Dupont Festival and the man behind the famous whistlepig.

This will be Phil’s first appearance in a Pride-related event.

“He only comes out a couple times a year,” says DeNu. “He’s a humble, unflinching prognosticator.”
