Who Doesn’t Love a Good Corn Maze and Hayride?
With summer coming to a close I am excited for fall festivities! West Michigan has so much to offer, especially when it comes to corn mazes. My family enjoys going to the fall festivities at local farms. Most of them offer mazes for different challenge or age levels.
With today’s technology, we can even see aerial pics of these incredible mazes, allowing us to really appreciate the work that went into growing these majestic fields.
