Autumn at the Arboretum Follow the Pumpkin Trail
Follow the pumpkin trail at the Dallas Arboretum to celebrate a fall tradition. The nationally acclaimed pumpkin village contains 90,000 pumpkins, gourds, squash and bales of hay with cornstalks. Enter the gate to see assorted pumpkins greeting guests.
Step into fairy tale pumpkin land where thousands of pumpkins are there to play with, hold and touch.
Children are fascinated with the different shapes of pumpkins. One looks like a white snowman.
Another pumpkin says "quack quack." as they are protecting their ducklings from the crowd.
Enter the doorway to pick out your favorite pumpkin for fall.
Follow the pumpkin trail of all sizes and shapes of orange spheres.
Along the way you may hear a bee buzzing.
It's part of the celebration of autumn at the Dallas Arboretum.
Birds want to chirp to say it's fall and everything is beautiful.
Monarch Butterflies want to sip nectar from beautiful yellow flowers.
Follow the pumpkin trail to designs of white and orange striped pumpkins.
Horses built with hay will carry you on a magical ride of pumpkin delight.
Circular designs of gourds, squash and white pumpkins with stripes fill you eyes with orange visions.
Which pumpkin is perfect for carving?
Some pumpkins must stay to keep the walls of the pumpkin house free from falling.
Other pumpkins are stacked in rows of white and orange.
At the Dallas Arboretum pumpkins line the road to say it's fall and the weather is getting cooler in Texas.
Gourds say it's harvest time.
The days are getting cooler and soon it will be Thanksgiving.
