I had the opportunity to visit the Dallas Arboretum a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed the pumpkin village. I was told by an employee that there are 65,000 pumpkins on display. It was very well done. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.
Piles and piles of pumpkins were displayed very creatively.
Many of the walkways were lined with pumpkins.
Some of the pumpkins were displayed on metal stands while others were stacked as topiaries or totems.
One section had all of the varieties labeled. This Apple Gourd looks just like a big green apple.
There were even pumpkin houses in the pumpkin village.
There was a maze of hay bales which is much more appropriate for small children.
There were several photo spots including Cinderella’s carriage and some scarecrow cut-outs.
There was a really cute scarecrow garden.
I saved my favorite for last, the swan lake display.
The “lake” was made of light green pumpkins and the “swans” were crooked neck gourds.
As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
