The Dallas Arboretum
features an amazing Pumpkin Village made with over 50,000 pumpkins, gourds, and squash. The Pumpkin Village contains four houses: Pumpkin Cafe, Peter's Pumpkin House, The Gourd House, and Jack's Pumpkin House. 21 different types of pumpkins, 15 types of squash and 8 types of gourds were used to make the houses. There is also a Pumpkin Carriage available. The Arboretum's outdoor Cafe on the Green serves a traditional German menu for October. The Arboretum had over 286,000 guests in 2012 and will likely have many more this year with its fun Pumpkin Village.
