The second annual Fair Weather Acres corn maze will open to the public this weekend.
Patrons will take a hayride to the entrance of the corn maze where people can take a stroll through the labyrinth. There will be children and adult pedal go-carts and a large grain corn pit.
“It’s a sand box full of corn,” Billy Collins, farm owner, said. “It’s more of a country theme.”
Michele Collins, who runs the stand and other retail ventures for the farm, helped sketch and build the spider web design of the corn maze.
About 10,000 people attended the corn maze last year and this year, Michele Collins is expecting 20,000 to 30,000 people to visit the maze.
The Collins purchased over 35 costumed, handmade scarecrows from the Country Charm Farm in New Paltz, N.Y., which closed last year. One scarecrow is dressed as Elvis Presley with a Pink Cadillac as prop and another one is dressed as Superman with a phone booth prop.
Michele Collins said the day would be "fall fun for the whole family on our family farm.”
There will be several food options for patrons. There will be a stand with cider donuts and pastries along with candy apples and beverages including hot and cold apple cider.
Pulled pork, chicken and beef brisket sandwiches by Hog Wild BBQ will be available for purchase. Pizzeria DaVinci will also be selling pizza as well as meatball and sausage grinders.
The maze is open Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The maze is available during the week for day cares, schools and other groups by special request. Kids can also have their birthday parties at the maze.
The price of admission is $13 per person with children two and under free. For groups of twenty and more, the price per person goes down to $11.
