Behind the Hedges at Dallas Arboretum

I am a life-long Dallasite but had never experienced what lies behind the hedges of Dallas Arboretum.  Last Friday I was invited out to take in the sights of Autumn at the Arboretum.  The experience was beyond anything I could have imagined.

The grounds are filled with more that 50,000 pumpkins, squash and gourds in an array of varieties.  Autumn at the Arboretum features Cinderella’s Pumpkin Village, a simply amazing sight to see.  Over 1,000 pumpkins and gourds create a beautiful village including Cinderella’s ballroom, rooms of Cinderella and her ugly step sisters and the Fairy Godmother’s home.  The star attraction of the village is Cinderella’s Carriage.  The life-size carriage has two topiary horses to “pull” it.

Other activities of the Autumn at the Arboretum event includes The Tom Thumb Pumpkin Patch, Hay Bale Maze, Oktoberfest Garten as well as may other activities.  Bring your friends and family out to enjoy Autumn at the Arboretum.  The event runs until November 23rd.

Dallas Arboretum is open year ’round and is an affordable destination that is educational and fun.  Being at the Dallas Arboretum is about creating memories.  I had a fun time doing that and I look forward to creating many more.
