Morton (HEART OF ILLINOIS ABC) - The Roth Pumpkin Patch opened for the fall season on Monday.
They offered pumpkins, a corn maze, double-barrel tube slides, "pumpkin peak climbing", and more.
Owner, Nic Roth, said he had been looking forward to reopening his pumpkin patch all year.
"It comes fast, just to get everything ready. Today is just an exciting day. It's kind of really a kick-off to the big festivities also in Morton with the Pumpkin Festival starting this week," Roth said.
This year the patch revealed a new activity, hillbilly basketball.
