Saturdays this Fall through November 27th
The George Ranch is a great place for families to visit anytime of the year, but there’s something very special about the Historical Park when the weather turns a bit cooler and the days feel like fall. This year, that fall feeling will be captured in a totally new way when two semi truckloads of pumpkins, gourds and squash arrive from Floydada, Texas, to create the Great Pumpkin Round Up at the ranch.
Inspired by the seventeen-year tradition at the Dallas Arboretum, local designer Lucas Chavez has created a magical pumpkin display that will take your breath away. Chavez has spent time researching the process with Arboretum experts and pumpkin producers in West Texas to lay out a design surrounding the George Ranch House that includes a western chuck wagon, training carriage, antique plows and much more. The Great Pumpkin Round Up is the perfect place for families and visitors of all ages to take an unforgettable fall photo surrounded by pumpkins that climb structures and cascade to the ground in whimsical designs.
The Great Pumpkin Round Up debuted in October during Texian Market Days and will be available for park visitors to enjoy every Saturday this fall through November 27th. The experience requires purchase of a regular admission ticket to the George Ranch Historical Park and includes the added fun of a giant haybale maze and other weekend children’s activities at the Ranch House. Come for the photos and awe and stay for a day of outdoor fun in the Historical Park where families are encouraged to bring a picnic, tour the historic homes and explore what life on the prairie was like decades ago.
