“After careful consideration, The Gardens decided to host the Fall Festival in a socially distant format to allow all our visitors to join in the fun,” said Michael Arnold, Ph.D., director of The Gardens and professor in the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Horticultural Sciences. “We’ve curated a number of fall-themed activities to add a special autumnal touch for our visitors.”
