Fall is Corn “a-Mazing” Time!

The first time I have been on a corn maze was a couple of years ago in Connecticut. We were visiting my best friend and her family and to them, a yearly trip to the corn maze and join in all the fall festivities is like a family tradition.Β I have never heard of such a thing before in my life so naturally, I was all game. It was a full day of playing with the kids, apple picking, eating kettle corn popcorn and whatnot. I enjoyed it so much! To this Florida girl, I felt like we were missing out on all the fun fall stuff the rest of the country was doing.

What is fall without pumpkins and pumpkin patches.. bales of hay and hay rides.. cinnamon flavored coffee and cinnamon cakes.. apples and apple picking.. corns and corn mazes. Β All these are activities that one can enjoy only during this time of the year. Add to that the crisp cool weather, dress up in layers and bring out those boots and scarves and you are ready to go!

This year, we went to the Eliada Corn Maze, Western North Carolina’s largest corn maze. This is an annual event organized by Eliada Homes, a non-profit orphanage located in Asheville, North Carolina. Proceeds from the corn maze benefit these kids and other high risk children. What a way to have fun and help out at the same time!

There were actually four mazes side by side. This one was the biggest (and supposedly hardest) one. The next one was shorter and easier. The third one was like a storybook for the kids and the last one was for the tractor rides.

Glad I didn’t get to see “the Children of the Corn” in here else, I would have freaked out!

So if you are in the area next year, maybe for some fall leaf color viewing, check this place out too. It’s fun for everyone in the family!

  1. I want to go !!! looks like so much fun, how about we do house swap for a week? I bet Cebu misses you as much as I miss wearing boots and running without losing 3l of water in 10mn πŸ˜›

    1. Surely, I can do a house swap for a week. That would be so cool if we can do that, eh? πŸ™‚ Just give me some pixie dust powder and I shall-kaboom!!-teleport to Cebu. I wouldn’t want to go through the airports there now anyway. Oh, the kid in me is having so much fun this fall season! Thank you for always making me smile with your quirky comments. πŸ™‚
