‘The Art of the Pumpkin’
Special to The Hesperian-Beacon—
Autumn at the Arboretum, presented by Reliant, highlights the nationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village featuring four, 20-foot-tall decorated pumpkin houses and creative displays fashioned from more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash from Pumpkin Pyle in Floydada, Texas.
With the theme, “The Art of the Pumpkin,” the Dallas Arboretum’s popular festival has been named one of the “Best Fall Festivals to Celebrate the Season” by Country Living Magazine.
The event opens on Sept. 19 and runs through Nov. 1. People can purchase tickets early online from Sept. 1-18 to receive $1 off per ticket; these tickets are valid for admission during the festival dates.
Autumn at the Arboretum features breathtaking colors of fall including 150,000 autumn flowers accented by pumpkins, gourds and squash.
The festival features the return of the popular Mommy and Me Mondays and Tiny Tot Tuesdays, presented by Kimberly-Clark, a hay bale maze, a pumpkin patch with pumpkins for purchase, music and more.
“We invite the community to the Dallas Arboretum to experience a familiar place, including Pumpkin Village, which has been a tradition for 15 years,” Alan Walne, Dallas Arboretum’s board chairman, said. “The garden is a wonderful place to social distance, get some fresh air outdoors and take plenty of photos.”
Guests can also visit A Tasteful Place, a 3.5-acre food, herb and vegetable garden. Weekly activities include free Monday cooking demonstrations with Dallas College Cooks along with activities throughout the week including cooking, floral and horticulture demonstrations. Each weekend features live bands playing in the afternoon.
