Photo essay: Fall fun at Corn Maze in The Plains Special

By Leigh Goessl     Oct 16, 2012 in Lifestyle
The Plains - Corn mazes are popular events in many regions during the fall and Northern Virginia has its fair share. One popular autumn destination for many families in the Washington area is the Corn Maze in The Plains.
Located in The Plains, Va., Corn Maze in The Plains brings many visitors to town. This annual event is now in its 13th year.
Over this past weekend, the temperatures once again jumped into the 70 degree range Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius), and with sunny skies above, it made for a perfect day to spend on the farm.
While much of the fall festivities on the farm remain the same from year to year, one new annual feature is a new theme in the corn maze.
This year's theme is "Witch Way Out".
Previous years' themes varied and have included "Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?", "Buy fresh Buy Local", and "Bat-titude", to name a few.
Other activities included with admission are seasonally themed slides, swings, pumpkin chucking, mini corn mazes, an obstacle course, and hayrides (riders sit on real hay!)
Additionally, visitors can purchase locally (organically) grown and/or locally prepared foods either in the farm's shop or at the farmer's market on the way out. And of course, there are lots of pumpkins, all shapes and sizes.
This year's event began on Sept. 29 and runs every weekend through Nov. 4. The farm is located at 4501 Old Tavern Rd. The Plains, Va.
