Pumpkin Patches Popping Up

By Bob Hallmark Email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A traditional sign of fall is showing up in roadside stands around East Texas.

Fall pumpkins are now at stands on South Broadway at the loop in Tyler. Most are ornamental pumpkins grown in New Mexico. They have become a standard for those who celebrate fall , Halloween and Thanksgiving. Pumpkin sellers say everyone has their own particular preference when it comes to the fall tradition.

The South Broadway pumpkin patch will be open daily until they sell out.
