MORTON, IL - With the goal for this year’s Roaring Pumpkins and All That Jazz to shop and support local, the Chamber and Festival Advisory Committee developed creative programs to celebrate local businesses and Chamber members. Favorite parts of Festival return in modified formats and new additions have been made to truly highlight all that Morton has to offer.

Businesses have always featured fun items and specials during Festival, and this year, many Chamber member businesses are showcasing specials through the new Talk of the Town program that will be available the week of September 14. From special menus to pumpkin décor, there are many opportunities for shopping, dining, and experiencing local. A full updated list of participating locations is available at mortonpumpkinfestival.org/talk-of-the-town.

Another way businesses are having their own fun at their locations are through this year’s Business-In-Place Expo sponsored by i3 Broadband. Visit the following businesses who will be hosting a display at their own locations for special deals and giveaways:
