What is Autumn at the Arboretum?

Autumn at the Arboretum is the annual fall event at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. This year’s theme is A Fall Fairy Tale featuring over 100,000 pumpkins, squash and gourds. The pumpkins all came from a farm in Floydada, Texas. According to the Pioneer Woman, this festival is one of “20 Best Pumpkin Patches in the U.S. to Visit With the Family This Fall.”
