Rain flattens Cloverdale corn maze
That vicious late September rain storm has forced the Bose corn maze to close down three weekends early.
It’s bound to be disappointing news for anyone planning to get lost in the Bose Corn Maze in Cloverdale this season – and devastating for the family that operates it each season.
The Sept. 28 rainstorm flattened more than half the maze, leaving the Bose family with no alternative but to close the attraction two weeks early.
“It flattened about half of the maze, to the point where you cannot see where the trails are anymore,” Novy Bose told the Reporter last week. “Other than that the season was pretty good.
“Unfortunately, most of our bookings come in the last two to three weeks. That’s where most of our income does come from.”
Pumpkin patch remains open
Bose said the pumpkin patch remains open this weekend from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and Thanksgiving day.
Find the patch south of 64 Avenue on 156 Street. Look for the sign.
Until Mother Nature’s wrath intervened, the Bose’s sprawling corn maze was easily one of the largest in the region.
It opened Aug. 24 and was slated to wrap up its 14th season on Thanksgiving Day, in preparation for the harvest.
The 2013 Bose Corn Maze was patterned after the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association’s logo, which pays tribute to historic Cloverdale with a design reflecting the area’s proud legacy as a transportation crossroads.
