It may be a bit out of the way, but the first weekend open for the Elmer Pumpkin Patch was still a big success. Tomorrow will be the start of the second weekend open for the Olson family, and they are expecting even more people to show up.

Shannon and Jenny Olson not only have a huge pumpkin patch with pumpkins of all sizes to choose from, but they have a lot of other activities including a petting zoo, pumpkin bowling, and a pumpkin toss tic-tac-game for the kids.

The Olsons also raise bees and sell their own brand of honey at the pumpkin patch.

To find the Elmer Pumpkin Patch, go 13 miles south of Altus to the Elmer Store, turn west, and follow the signs. They are open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
