Tis the Season – CORN MAZE!October 25th, 2009 by jennyonthespot
It’s that time of year… corn maze season. It’s time to bring out the rubber boots, mittens, hats, umbrellas, and pick them pumpkins! Tis also the season to warm-up by the fire and make gallons of hot cocoa. And coffee.
A little treasure popped up in our community last year – the corn maze at Sunrise Hill Farm in Kingston.
I know there are many local mazes and patches… all of which have their own distinct fun and charm. We are so fortunate to have such great choices!
I would have to say that right now, the kind of fun at Sunrise Hill Farm is my favorite, and my children’s favorite. My daughter’s preschool went last week, and I am now home all toasty-warm after another afternoon of wandering a Sasquatch-shaped corn maze:
…and eating hot dogs purchased from the quaint concession stand at Sunrise Hill. You might be familiar with some of their unique & delightful bouquets often found at Central Market.
A Sasquatch-shaped corn maze alone would be reason enough to head out in the drizzle and chill. For the sake of the children, that is… But what makes this place so fun for my family are all the “extras”… kiddos can go into the barn and jump in the hay:
There is a preschool-aged trike area:
If the corn maze is just too much, a smaller hay bale maze can feel more managable, for those who are directioanlly impaired like me:
The kids can get their energy out on Hay Bale Mountain:
There are also llamas and horses… a fire pit… and flowers! There’s a u-pick flower garden!
And of course… pumpkins. There are pumpkins of all sizes, but my little Lucy wanted one she could tote around:
