Fall is right around the corner and with that comes fall festivities.
One family has been gearing up for just that.
Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze is back this year after missing last season due to the flood.
Jordan Pederson takes us there.
Round or tall
Bumpy or small
The Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch has them all..
(Shawn Lokken) "This one!"
Shawn Lokken and his Grandma set out to find the perfect pumpkin..
(Shawn Lokken) "This one is for Grandpa since he has a big belly."
The Berry Acres Farm, located west on County Road 15, will kick off their second year of fall festivities this weekend.. with a plump pumpkin patch to pick from...
(Shawn Lokken) "Lots of pumpkins."
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "We have a very good crop. It has been a good year for pumpkins. We were kind of thinking maybe around 30,000."
Pedal bikes to ride.. Hay Bales to play on...
...corn maze for children...
and a more challenging one for adults.. that is designed like the Enbridge Logo.
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "They sponsored it this year so when you see the aerial view, their logo is in it.
I'm at the entrance of the Berry Acres Corn Maize and I'm going to try to give this thing a shot."
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "The big one is difficult. It will take you at least an hour."
I can go that way or this way.
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "We have had a few people call while they were in the maze saying that they needed help getting out of here."
Gaylen, which direction?
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "We also have a halfway point so if you don't want to go through. We also have a snack shack in the middle so if they get tired or want to take a break."
But incase you do get lost.....
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "My husband, he will be going through the maze as people are going through and if they need help or if they want help to get through it, he will help them."
The Pumpkin Patch and Maze will open this Saturday and run through Halloween.
Admission is six dollars and hours for Monday through Friday are noon until dark.
Saturday and Sunday nine AM until dark
(Ashley Berry, Owner, Berry Acres Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze) "It is something to do for kids and families to all hang out together and have a good time."
I see the sunflower seeds, that means I'm almost to the end. It was a great maze but more difficult than I though it would be. Jordan Pederson, KX News.
The last two Saturdays of October the patch will stay open after dark and you can bring a flash light and give it a try then. Flashlights will also be for sale.
