Pumpkins on pumpkins on pumpkins!! Our favorite place in town to snatch some 🎃?! RUIBALS!! – @ruibalsgardenshop down by the Farmer’s Market is THE place to go when October 1st comes around and it’s time to break out the Halloween decorations!! Ruibal’s not only has the best backdrop with the Downtown skyline directly in the background haha, they literally have hundreds upon hundreds of pumpkins from giant to big to small to tiny to white to bumpy to multicolored and beyond. – And if you’re not looking to buy pumpkins, it’s still totally worth the trip to go buy and see their display. In fact when we were there getting some photos, we saw several parents taking pics of their kids sitting on the giant pumpkins!
A post-Farmer’s Market haunt, Ruibal’s Plants is always overflowing with–you guessed it–plants. However, fall means the store is flooded with pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. It’s perfect for snapping an Instagram picture (or two or three). And don’t be surprised if you go home with a few squash of your own.
The Dallas Arboretum never fails to deliver with its annual pumpkin festival. Visit now until Nov 21 to see 90,000 pumpkins, squash and gourds displayed beautifully throughout the garden. This year’s theme is “The Adventures in Neverland.” Grab your camera before heading out, because it’ll look like you stepped out of the Dallas heat and into a Fall Wonderland.
