2014 Parade Information

Parade Marshall this year is Deb Pinion
We are pleased to announce Deb Pinion as our Grand Marshall for the 2016 Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival. 

Deb has been the Executive Director of the Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce since 1995 and loves Bucyrus more than anyone we know. Deb will be retiring to "part time" status at the end of October and be fully retired in April of 2017. Deb and her husband Roger have been married 49 years, making the 49th Bratwurst Festival even more special. 
Deb says she's been to the last 48 festivals- she missed the first one because she was, of all places, in Germany with Roger while he was serving our county. 

Congratulations and thank you for all you have done and will continue to do for Bucyrus!
