The maze will be open 11 a.m.-7 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday through Sunday, Oct. 29, Wilson Binkley Marketing and Advertising said in a news release. The maze includes hayrides, giant slides, a country store and more.

General admission is $18 ($2 military discount), $15 for children ages 12 and under and free for children ages 2 and under.

Maze special events

  • Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 7-8: Fall Festival, featuring live music, contests and more;
  • Saturday, Sunday, Oct. 28-29: Pumpkin Festival, with special deals on pumpkins from the patch.

“Our team has worked extra hard this year to get things ready for all of our friends, neighbors and visitors,” said maze owner Anna Lyles. “We’ve been doing this so long now, we have multiple generations of people visiting the maze, sharing their own childhood experiences with their kids.”

The maze was established almost three decades ago to provide a traditional family experience to area children and families and to educate people about agriculture, the news release said.
