(Hannibal)— A large crowd endured the sweltering noontime heat in Central Park on the 4th as Hannibal’s Official Tom and Becky for 2012-2013 were revealed.

Lucas Cline is the new Tom. He says all of his peers were qualified candidates. Brooke Burton, aka Becky, says time kind of “stood still’ while waiting for the retiring Tom to reveal the new Becky.

Tom and Becky and the alternates will make hundreds of appearances on behalf of Hannibal in the coming year.
