Dallas Arboretum Kicks Off Autumn at the Arboretum

Sep 18, 2015 02:22PM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

If you embrace the fall season and all things pumpkin, make your way to the Dallas Arboretum's highly anticipated Autumn at the Arboretum. Voted one of “America’s Best Pumpkin Festivals,” by Fodor's Travel, it opens September 19 and runs through November 25.

Southlake Style’s editor got a first look at the Arboretum – including the nationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village. This fall-season spectacle is created with more than 75,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash by a talented horticulture team.

“As we say, ‘Everything is bigger in Texas.’ This is a record-breaking number for the Arboretum’s autumn display, so it is only fitting to recreate an Old Texas Town in the Pecan Grove,” Dave Forehand, Vice President of Gardens, said in a press release.

Cinderella’s carriage is back by popular demand this year, and with thousands of pumpkins, hay bales and cornstalks artfully arranged throughout Pecan Grove, the photo opps are many.
