Pumpkins as an artistic medium? It sounds silly at first, but the Dallas Arboretum absolutely nails it with its The Art of the Pumpkin display. Featuring more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash, the arboretum’s colorful Pumpkin Village is back for a 15th year. Here’s our guide to this immensely popular attraction.
Why It’s Worth Your Time
The Art of the Pumpkin is an inspiring display of creativity. Harnessing the beauty of nature, the artists behind the exhibition prove that imagination has no bounds. The numbers behind the display are staggering – four 20-foot-tall pumpkin houses, 150,000 autumn flowers, 90,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash. The attention to detail is impeccable. You’re sure to find yourself staring in awe at this colorful creation.
More Than Just Pumpkins
