Turtle Creek Association Carves Up Fun with

“Pumpkins in the Park”

Annual fall festival to be held in Turtle Creek Park October 19th


DALLAS – September 5, 2013 – Turtle Creek will be brimming with pumpkins during the “Pumpkins in the Park,” a fall festival hosted by non-profit group, Turtle Creek Association.  The beautiful fall display and festivities are open to the public with free activities and pumpkins, food and beverages to buy.

The fun begins at 11 a.m. and will conclude at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 19th.  Air brush tattoos, balloon artists and a hay maze will keep the kids entertained and busy.  The public is encouraged to bring their blankets and a picnic to spread out and enjoy a fall afternoon in one of Dallas’ most beautiful parks.  Food trucks will be on hand for the lunchtime crowd.

The scenery will be ideal for photos and a professional photographer will be on site to snap group and family fall photographs for free. It will be a perfect time to get that holiday picture taken care of or a fun snapshot of a group of friends or the kids.  Pumpkins will be for sale in all shapes and sizes can also be bought to donate to children at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and will be delivered by volunteers after the event.

Operation Kindness, a nonprofit animal welfare organization that cares for homeless or unwanted cats and dogs in a no-kill environment, will be on-site with dogs ready for a good home.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their pets to play in the park.

The event will take place at Turtle Creek Park located at the southeast corner of Hall Street and Turtle Creek Boulevard.  Free parking will be available at Park Creek Place, 3625 Hall Street.

Turtle Creek Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the natural beauty and quality of life in the 87 acres of urban forest and parkland in the Turtle Creek Corridor.
