The Morton Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors recently voted to dedicate a portion of the festival's revenue to the Morton Veterans Memorial.
The memorial is expected to go in the new Downtown Plaza.
The chamber has donated more than $280,000 of festival revenue to local organizations and initiatives over the past 10 years.
The Pumpkin Festival runs from September 10th through the 13th.
