The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens annual floral festival, Dallas Blooms, has officially begun! The 6-week festival, running from now until Sunday, April 7th, will feature an incredible 500,000 tulips among hundreds of thousands of other flowers throughout the gardens. Admission to the grounds is available on the official website now.

An exciting list of events during the celebration will include tasty food and drinks, musical performances, film screenings, and art displays. This year's Dallas Blooms Festival theme is "Life's A Picnic" so be prepared for mimosas, snacks and cooking classes in the park!

Every day in the garden will be a fun day of live music, stunning photos, and wine tastings. For a more calming visit, there will be Spring tea time, basket weaving, and guided meditative walks available for visitor enjoyment.

There are plenty of family-friendly events on the schedule, so the whole family can enjoy a fun day surrounded by beautiful tulips and blossoms. Each weekend will be packed with exciting, themed events for kids to explore nature, make inventive crafts and learn about the world around them. Check out the official event schedule to see all the family events.

Whether you're coming for drinks with friends or family fun, Dallas Blooms is the perfect place for incredible floral photos. You won't want to head home without snapping a few pics with the thousands of colorful, blooming flowers.
