The Pumpkin Patch at the Dallas Arboretum arrives with 90,000 pumpkins of all kinds to the delight of visitors. Come with your family to enjoy the garden that this year has the theme of the Wizard of Oz.
We were invited at no cost to the downtown preview of the Dallas Arboretum, my opinion is personal.
The most anticipated festival in Autumn, the pumpkin garden or Pumpkin Patch of the Dallas Arboretum.
Now it comes with the theme of “Pumpkins, Squashes, and Gourds, Oh My!” based on the beloved book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, that of the “Follow the Yellow Path” to Strings.
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden have had the pumpkin patch every year, since twelve years ago. The Villa de Calabazas looks spectacular, I had a good time taking pictures and videos, what weird truth? There are pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors; there are 22 different varieties you can find.
Fodor’s Travel named it one of America’s finest pumpkin festivals, “America’s Best Pumpkin Festivals.” There are some very peculiar swan-shaped pumpkins that this time settled as such in a “river”. This year the pumpkin patch features 4 pumpkin houses, in the Witch’s Castle, which is decorated with dark plants, your children will be able to take photos with the witch who will visit the garden in a few days.
Apart from the pumpkin patch at the Dallas Arboretum, you can find a restaurant inside, the new edible garden, an event hall, fountains, lakes, and many photo locations, as well as the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden.
