Fall is in the air and Cheekwood is ready for harvest.

"[The pumpkin house is] 12-feet tall. It’s comprised of over 800 pumpkins," Caroline Jeronimus, with Cheekwood Estate & Gardens. 

The pumpkin house is a fan favorite.

"It’s really become the go-to photo-op for the fall season here in Nashville," said Jeronimus. 

You can find the perfect pic, just about everywhere you look. There's a wall of mums, gardens popping with pollinators and a scarecrow forest. 

Mary Weber is the Director of Horticulture. She says it takes a team to create the fall foliage and says the gardens are meant inspire and educate. 

This year, you can even get a taste of fall inside the beer garden, where they'll host live music and food trucks.

The festivities, including the 3rd Annual Pooch Parade, run through October 21. Click here for more.
