Sycamore’s annual Pumpkin Festival is underway…with the unveiling of a statue, dedicated to the memory of the man who started it all.

A bronze statue of festival founder Wally Thurow has been unveiled in the Sycamore city lot at Somonauk and Elm Streets; dozens of friends, family and residents were on hand for the first public viewing of the statue – which was created with funds raised by a private committee, from various donors throughout the community.

Speakers say Thurow would pass on any personal recognition for himself, insisting that the focus be on the festival; but friends and colleagues say the statue also represents the efforts of hundreds of people over the years…and of the people of Sycamore, who took Wally’s idea and made it their own.

The festival started Wednesday evening with the Pumpkin Decorating Contest check-in at the DeKalb County Courthouse, and the traditional cake-cutting ceremony.  Click here for a complete schedule of events during the festival weekend.
