[Photo Story] Fall At The Arboretum

It might not feel like it, but we’re finally getting to the heart of fall. While temperatures in the 60s and 70s persist for the next couple of days, there are some signs that it’s finally October with the leaves changing and folks getting into the seasonal spirit. Look no further than the Arboretum, where pumpkins are everywhere in the midst of its annual festival.

The picturesque Arboretum might as well be the image of fall at Penn State.
The Childhood’s Gate Children’s Garden has been transformed for the season.

Each year, there is a pumpkin carving contest.
The competition will be judged on Friday, with ribbons going to the best Jack-o’-lanterns.

There isn’t much else like the Arboretum on a beautiful fall day.
