In the movie "Groundhog Day," actor Bill Murray re-lives the same day over and over again. The movie was filmed 21 years ago in far northwest suburban Woodstock, and the town will celebrate the anniversary of the filming again this year.

Craig Krandel, Co-Chair of the Woodstock Groundhog Day Committee, and his wife Jaci, owner of Jaci's Cookies in Woodstock, who was actually involved in the filming, came into our ABC 7 Eyewitness News studio to tell us about the planned festivities, and to show us how to make "Woodstock Willie's Favorite Cookie."
