We all have been anxiously waiting for the fall season, and it finally is here! Cooler weather, pumpkin spice, Halloween and sweaters are some of the best parts of the season. In the next month or so, there are countless fun fall things to do around Dallas to enjoy the colder weather and celebrate fall. Here are some of the best activities in Dallas that we have been waiting for all year.
The State Fair of Texas
The State Fair of Texas is filled with classic amusement park rides, lots of fried food and the rodeo. It is so fun to grab a group of friends and go explore the fair on a Saturday afternoon! It begins Friday, September 30th, and ends Sunday, October 23rd, and is located at 34 Cotton Bowl Cir, Dallas, TX 75210.
The Dallas Farmers Market
Every Sunday morning in Downtown Dallas, there is a farmers market where local farmers, jewelers, clothiers and many others gather to show off their unique items. It is particularly special in the fall because all the produce is so fresh, the weather is cool, and they have a beautiful section of pumpkins. The farmers market is located at 920 S Harwood St, Dallas, TX 75201.
A Pumpkin Patch
The Dallas Arboretum has created its own fairy tale-style pumpkin patch. It is not comparable to your average pumpkin patch as it has pumpkin villages, carriages and pumpkins as far as you can see. It is located at 8525 Garland Rd, Dallas, TX 75218, and will be going on from September 17th to October 31st.
Traditionally, Oktoberfest is a large festival in Munich, Germany to celebrate the marriage between two royals in 1810. People dress up in traditional costumes, called dirndls, and gather to socialize, celebrate, eat and drink. This year Dallas is hosting their own Oktoberfest on October 1st at White Rock Lake on Flag Pole Hill with “live music, bites and brews.”
