Autumn at the Dallas Arboretum
November 14, 2011
There are many advantages to living in or near Dallas, and the Dallas Arboretum is at the top of the list. If you’ve never visited the Arboretum, fall is an ideal time to experience this unique Dallas attraction, and it’s easy to find the time as the Arboretum is open daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Here are a few of the autumn activities.
Music in the Gardens: Enjoy a keyboardist on the Loggia every day from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., and don’t miss the Rhett Butler classical duet on the Martin Rutchik Concert Stage, Saturdays from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Cinderella’s Pumpkin Village: Beginning September 17 and running until November 23, the Arboretum is transformed into a fall wonderland. The grounds will be filled with 150,000 blooming fall flowers and foliage plantings, plus more than 50,000 pumpkins, squash, and gourds. A central feature of the village this year is Cinderella’s Carriage. The life-sized carriage is white with gold detailing and measures more than six feet tall and six feet wide. As a final touch, two full-size topiary horses pull the carriage. It’s picture perfect, so don’t forget to snap one of the kids.
Garden Tours: These guided tours begin every Wednesday and Saturday at 11 a.m.
