2017 Friend of the Festival is Keith and Jamie Snyder

It is with a great deal of pleasure that the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival Committee announces its 2017 “Friend of the Festival", Keith and Jamie Snyder

Retired Sycamore Police Department Sergeant, Keith Snyder and his son, Jamie, have, with the co-operation of the Sycamore Park District, laid the chalk lines lining the 2 mile parade route for the past 15 years, which assists in keeping the route clear so the parade participants may pass safely. In addition, father and son are members of Basically Bluegrass Band which performed on the DeKalb County Courthouse steps on PumpkinFest weekend for 15 years until 2014.
