DENISON, TX -- For those of you who still haven't bought your Halloween pumpkins, a local Denison pumpkin patch wants to let you know there's plenty of selection this year.

Although a drought has plagued most of the state this year, spring rains kept the pumpkin crop thriving. Elves Christmas Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch in Denison says they have pumpkins from a few ounces all the way up to 110 pounds. Owner, Marshall Cathey, says the crop is as good as ever.

"Texas did pretty well. We got some rain in the early spring and on into the summer when the planting was going on, so Texas was able to hold on a lot better than the Midwest. So this year the pumpkin patch and pumpkin crops look really good in Texas," says Cathey.

Cathey says prices haven't fluctuated either. You can pick up your pumpkin for decoration or cooking at Elves Pumpkin Patch. Hours are Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sundays 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
