Pumpkin Palooza!

It's back - and this year it's bigger than ever! Autumn at The Arboretum presents The Great Pumpkin Festival kicking off this Saturday, September 19th. Bring the whole family and see over 40,000 decorative pumpkins and gourds! Always a favorite spot for the family photo, the festival also features over 150,000 fall blooming flowers including chrysanthemums, salvia, coleus, ornamental grasses and impatiens. But don't worry kiddos - if chrysanthemums don't wow you like they do Mom, you can romp around and wear yourself out in the 15-foot pumpkin house and kids hay bale maze!

The festival runs through November 1. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is located on the Southeastern shore of White Rock Lake at 8525 Garland Road, Dallas, TX, 75218. The Arboretum is open daily from 9am until 5pm. For more information and other events, call (214) 515-6500 or visit the Arboretum's website at www.dallasarboretum.org.
