What comes to mind when you think of corn fields? Harvest? Autumn? Quaint roadside produce stands? How about corn mazes? In the crisp air under a tepid sun we think fun. But have you ever ran deep into a corn maze after dark? We triple-dog-dare you to test your bravery while fighting off thoughts of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn. (Go under the full moon – October 27th.) Whether you’re up for an after-dark game of tag with your friends, or a family-friendly stroll through the stalks, here are five corn mazes in the Okanagan.
Don’t live in the Okanagan? Don’t worry we made a list for Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island too.
Hours: Family Daze Corn Maze: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m; Field of Screams: gates open at 6 p.m. and maze at 7 p.m.
Description: Bring your family for the O’Keefe Ranch Family Daze Corn Maze, running Oct. 10, 11, 17, 18, 24 and 25. For those looking for a good scare, try out the Field Of Screams. Not suitable for children or the faint of heart.
