There will be plenty of events at Cheekwood through Halloween that you and your kids can enjoy.

“This weekend will begin Cheekwood’s Harvest Festival”, said Elizabeth Sheets. “Among other activities, we will have about 5,000 chrysanthemums in the garden. We will have a beer garden where we will be selling beer and food, Thursday through Sunday. In the Beer Garden, we will have live music every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.”

Sheets continued,”We will have lots of activities for the children, so you can bring your family out to celebrate harvest at Cheekwood. We will have the pumpkin house on display with a pumpkin patch and at least 20 or 30 scarecrow in our gardens, which were designed by different community organizations.”

A pooch parade is also being held on Oct. 21, and on Oct. 31 there will be a “Goblins in the Garden” event for toddlers.
