Parade and Band Results from the 52 Annual Sycamore Pumpkin Festival Parade


2013 is the 52nd Annual Sycamore Pumpkin Festival downtown.   What started out as an idea by Wally Thurow in 1956 to offer something creative for the students of Sycamore, has grown from a neighborhood display on his front yard into the towns biggest city wide event beginning on Wednesday witht the Opening Ceremony and cake cutting.  The festival begins with over 1000 entries in the Lions Decorated Pumpkin Display, 2 carnivals, 2 large indoor craft shows, many non-profit vendors, and culminating with an hour and a half long parade on Sunday.
