Live Local: Edmonton Corn Maze
Happy thanksgiving from our family to yours! This week we are spotlighting the Edmonton Corn Maze; Pack up the fam (and your furry friend.. the maze is pet friendly) and get lost. The weather is beautiful and the city is looking extra pretty these days, so take the chance to get out and appreciate the people that mean the most to you this thanksgiving weekend. Just south of the city the Edmonton Corn Maze stretches over the length of three football fields, 15 acres of twists and turns will ensure even the most directionally-challenged a good time!
Admission is $11 for adults, $9 for children, and the little ones under 5 is free. To navigate through the field, posts are set up with games and interactive activities to help you find your way. My personal favorite had me singing ‘I’m a little teapot’ for an audience of fellow bewildered maze-ers to get back on track. This year the maze has gone virtual, bring your smart phone with you and use the GPS to help you navigate. But don’t worry, if you get too lost the Corn Cops will help you find your way! You can expect to spend about an hour in the corn (side note: Team crushed it in 30 minutes – still not sure how we managed that…).
Accompanying the main event, the farm is buzzing with an abundance of fall fun! Attending to the little ones (and those of us young in spirit) they also have a petting zoo on site, here you can play with the goats, chickens, bunnies, and cows like the cutie in this picture! With the abundance of well … corn of course, pumpkins and tractors this is the perfect place to celebrate the beauty of Autumn in our city.
On top of this we have made up a list of other family-fun things to do this Thanksgiving long weekend:
Haunted Pumpkin Festival – Prairie Gardens and Adventure farm
Curtain up – Arden Theatre
McKay Days – Millennium Place
