Wally Thurow was the founder of Sycamore’s annual Pumpkin Festival. The event began when Mr. Thurow adorned his front lawn with decorated pumpkins. Since then, the festival has grown to include a carnival, street performances, a flea market, its famously grand parade, and of course, the courthouse lawn display of decorated pumpkins. This year, come enjoy the 54th Year of the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival from Wednesday, October 21 – 25.
Stop in on Saturday, October 17th, when 10% of sales in the Blumen Gardens Gift and Garden Shop will be donated to the Wally Thurow “Mr. Pumpkin” Scholarship Fund which will support Sycamore High School Graduates!
