Although this Dallas weather doesn’t seem fitting for the season, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden certainly did a great job of celebrating the start of Autumn this past weekend.
Saturday, Drew and I drove out to White Rock Lake and visited Dallas’ gorgeous arboretum in celebration of Autumn at the Arboretum. There were over 90,000 pumpkins in the whole park, and lots of places to enjoy the shade despite the heat.
Since it was the end of September, I felt the need to break out a sweater for our trip to the arboretum. Much to my surprise, it was at least 90 degrees outside; so it was just a litttttle hot. Thankfully, the breeze kept me cool when I wasn’t in the shade.
The theme for the park was Wizard of Oz; which was perfect since it tied in well with the pumpkins and corn stalks. I loved it. The Yellow Brick Road led visitors around the Land of Oz (and lots of pumpkin houses).
The whole park looked like a fall escape. We spent a little over two hours there and didn’t even cover half of the park. It was awesome; I am definitely going back again once the temperatures cool down.
Autumn at the Arboretum goes until November 22. You can learn more about the event on their website.
