In addition to the maze, each day will feature a farm animal petting zoo, pumpkin decorating, hay mountain climb, riding a kids zip line and a hayride. With plenty of concessions to enjoy, visitors may purchase hamburgers, popcorn, corn dogs and other snacks and drinks from local vendors.
The corn maze festivities will culminate with a Night Maze and Bonfire on Oct. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. A family fun Halloween-themed evening, children and adults are encouraged to costume and enjoy games, live music and roasting s’mores at the bonfire.
Admission for each event is $10 per person, with children 3 and under admitted free.
