We were invited to visit the Dallas Arboretum. All opinions are 100% my own
I have wanted to visit Autumn at the Arboretum for as long as I can remember. So, when we got the opportunity to attend their media day, it was seriously like a dream come true. As you can imagine I was very excited I go to check this place off my fall bucket list, early. I am such a big fan of fall and was blown away by the beautiful and creative displays utilizing more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash. Whether you live in DFW or just visiting, the Dallas Arboretum is a must!!
Autumn at the Arboretum runs from September 21 to October 31
This year’s theme
Dallas’ most anticipated fall festival returned with the theme “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” based on the beloved movie. And boy did they knock it out of the park. The ‘Great Pumpkin’ topiary stands 15 feet tall, and is filled with 4,500 quarts of marigolds. You can also find; a Lucy topiary inside of a 10-foot pumpkin house, now her ‘Garden Advice Hut’, a SnoopyDoghouse made of pumpkins where Snoopy and Woodstock are greeted by Linus and Sally in a pumpkin mosaic, and a few other really cool features!!
