What would it be like to live in a world dominated by pumpkin-based lifeforms? You can visit the Dallas Arboretum to find out. There's currently an exhibit with thousands of examples and dozens of varities. A press release states:
The grounds will be filled with more than 50,000 pumpkins, squash and gourds. Guests will find displays featuring 45 varieties at unexpected locations – stacked near the entrance, lining the Paseo de Flores and marking the steps to the Women’s Garden.
In keeping with this year’s “It’s a Fairy Tale World” theme, Cinderella’s Pumpkin Village comes to life with four houses based on the classic fairytale. Constructed of 1,200 pumpkins and gourds, the houses depict Cinderella’s ballroom, the rooms of Cinderella and her ugly stepsisters, and the Fairy Godmother’s home. Children will be enchanted to explore the houses, and adults will be amazed at the construction details.
