Our top four picks on the pumpkin sightings you must put on your list of things to do in the Metroplex this fall!

Pumpkin Hollow: Little Elm, TX
October 17-19
Little Elm Pumpkin Hollow



Spend some time in the Lakefront this fall by attending Little Elm’s seasonal kickoff event! Pumpkin Hollow is the perfect place to enjoy the fall season with a small-town feel. At this event, you can enjoy a lighted pumpkin trail that is made of real, hand-carved pumpkins! If you’re looking for more of a thrill then check out the Haunted Trail for $10 cash. This event also holds a family-friendly hayride, and what could be more fall than that?! Once done with all the pumpkin sightings, you can stop by the old fashioned carnival with local vendors! After the event, head to one of the Lakefront’s restaurants to grab a bite before heading home!

What better way to celebrate the fall season than with Dallas’ favorite fall tradition. This year is the fourteenth year of Autumn at the Arboretum happening now at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. This year’s theme is none other than “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. There are plenty of photo opportunities located throughout the festival to snap with your favorite characters! The display is made up of 150,000 autumn flowers, accented by pumpkins, gourds, and squash. Be sure to make a stop here to snap the perfect fall pic!

Halls Pumpkin Farm



If you have been on the hunt for a pumpkin patch, look no further than Hall’s Pumpkin Farm! This pumpkin patch has pumpkins galore that you can pick and take home yourself! There are also plenty of pumpkins and hay bales scattered throughout the farm that make for excellent photo ops! While you’re there, you can take your chance at the corn maze! This maze is made up of corn stalks that are almost nine feet tall! It takes most people 15 to 20 minutes to complete, can you beat that?





Pumpkin Nights: Arlington, TX

Perfect for a date night or a family outing! This new pumpkin lighted festival is coming to Arlington! Take a journey through seven different pumpkin lands to help save the spirit of Halloween! This unique event consists of 3,000 hand-carved real and artificial pumpkins throughout the half-mile walk.
