It’s the most wonderful time of the year at the Dallas Arboretum! I finally got to see this year’s annual Pumpkin Village display and it did not disappoint. This year’s theme is “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” with your favorite Peanuts character taking over the pumpkin village. I had a blast exploring it with my sweet friends Emily, Mark, and Mindy!
This is the fourteenth year of the beloved pumpkin village, which has received national recognition the past few years. Over 90,000 pumpkins make up the village, which includes a multitude of fun photo ops. Over 3,000 ears of corn and 1,500 corn stalks offer autumnal ambiance. A fifteen-foot Great Pumpkin topiary stands in the center of the village and is filled with 4,500 quarts of Marigolds. (Garden goals, am I right?)
One of my favorite displays is the Lucy topiary, which offers “Garden Advice” in a ten-foot pumpkin house.
The Peanuts gang schoolhouse sure put a smile on my face! I love that you get to walk inside the pumpkin village structures.
Twenty-four varieties of pumpkins are used to make the displays. I love how the Dallas Arboretum includes a section with pumpkin education so you can see all the different types of pumpkins.
There’s even a highly photogenic pumpkin patch. That’s right – you can buy a pumpkin at the Arboretum to take home!
Even outside of the Pumpkin Village, the Dallas Arboretum is decked out with pumpkins galore.
While there’s never a bad time to visit the Arboretum, Fall at the Arboretum is definitely my favorite. I hope you have as much fun exploring this year’s Pumpkin Village as I did! Dallas Arboretum is open from 9 am to 5 pm. The Pumpkin Village runs through October 31, 2019. For more information, visit dallasarboretum.org.
