It’s been raining since Friday (started right after work), so my plans to build a roof over my roof this weekend has been delayed. Summer doesn’t officially end for another 2+ weeks, but the cool and wet weather sure feels like Fall. In fact, while I’ve been couped up inside, I’ve been thinking about the next holiday: Halloween. In my opinion, it’s the best holiday of the year. I can’t wait for Halloween and I can’t wait to visit The Maize at The Pumpkin Patch. We went last year and had a fun time. BTW, you can save $2 on admission with this online coupon.
About The Maize at The Pumpkin Patch
Portland’s original cornfield maze celebrates its 16th season at The Pumpkin Patch on beautiful Sauvie Island in Portland, Oregon. Seventeen years ago, Craig Easterly, founder of the original corn maze, brought his weird idea to Sauvie Island’s famous Pumpkin Patch and it soon became a fall tradition. The MAiZE attracts 30,000 eager explorers annually to the giant labyrinth of field corn, located just fifteen minutes from downtown Portland. Portland’s premier agri-tainment attraction, The Maize and The Pumpkin Patch, have combined the local food movement with down home fun on the farm.
The MAiZE theme this year is “Dream Big” and depicts a happy child thrilled to find one of The Pumpkin Patch’s giant pumpkins in the field. The MAiZE encourages visitors to come out and enjoy the rest of this fantastic summer we have all been enjoying as they lose themselves in the two miles of twist and turns in the five acre cornfield.
