The Art of the Pumpkin at The Dallas Arboretum

The Art of the Pumpkin at The Dallas Arboretum

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. With this years 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. This is the perfect place to hang out this fall with your family, all while being safe and socially distant.
