The annual Maize at Grandpa’s Farm has showcased a number of complex designs over the years.
From Grant Wood’s American Gothic to commemorating 150 years of Montana tradition, each new design sure to impress and disorient all who attempt to conquer the corn.
This year’s design continues that tradition and honors the nation’s first responders.
A fire engine, fireman’s helmet, police vehicle and the inscription ‘THANK YOU’ are some of the obstacles in this year’s maze.
Mindi Hopkin, who is currently in the process of purchasing the maze with her husband, said the design is meant to show appreciation for the brave men and women who run head first into uncertainty.
“We wanted to honor our first responders this year with all they do for us,” Hopkin said. “Where they usually run toward the danger, we run away from it. So we wanted to honor them and let them know how much we appreciate their service.”
The Maize at Grandpa’s Farm opens to all those seeking a challenge on Friday, September 2 and continuing until October 29.
General admission is $10 and $13 when the lights dim and the maze is taken over by spirits during their haunted events.
