Great for the Young and Young at Heart, Autumn at the Arboretum Is Fun for Everyone
Jump headfirst into fall at Autumn at the Arboretum! For the 14th year, Autumn at the Arboretum, presented by Rogers-O'Brien, highlights the nationally acclaimed Pumpkin Village, which features pumpkin houses and creative displays utilizing more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash. This is one display you have to see to believe, so do just that this Saturday, October 5th!
With the theme, "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," the Dallas Arboretum's fall festival features several Peanuts-themed displays. There’s a "Great Pumpkin" covered in marigolds; topiary characters such as Linus, Sally and Franklin; Lucy giving garden advice at her advice booth; and Schroeder standing near his giant topiary piano. Guests can snap selfies with Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie behind the iconic brick wall, get lost with Pig Pen in the hay bale maze and see the Peanuts Gang at their gourd-decorated schoolhouse.
Named one of "The Best Pumpkin Festivals to Visit This Fall," by Martha Stewart Living Magazine, the festival features breathtaking colors of fall including 150,000 autumn flowers accented by pumpkins, gourds, and squash.
Additional favorites include a visit to A Tasteful Place, the newly opened 3.5-acre food, herb and vegetable garden, with three free daily tastings featuring savory samples of seasonal produce. Weekly activities include free Monday cooking demonstrations with El Centro College Cooks along with activities throughout the week including vendor demonstrations, cooking classes, garden-to-table dinners and more. Visitors can also explore the eight-acre Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden. The young and young-at-heart enjoy learning from more than 150 interactive science exhibits, plant labs, and the OmniGlobe.
