Bickner named 2013 pumpkin parade marshal
Swim coach will help lead Sycamore event
SYCAMORE – Brian Bickner grew up in Sycamore, entering decorated pumpkins in the Sycamore Lions' Pumpkin Festival contest every year.
Today, Bickner said he is enjoying the festival from a different perspective: through the eyes of his three daughters, Ava, Callie and Brooklyn. The coach of the DeKalb County Swim Team at the Kishwaukee Family YMCA said he "didn't have to think about it at all" when the Pumpkin Festival Committee asked him to serve as this year's parade grand marshal.
"I know how big a deal [the festival] is to the community and was to me as a kid," he said. "It really means a lot. It's a great honor to be asked by the committee to be the grand marshal."
