Corn maze opens in time for long weekend

A cold, wet spring and other hitches meant a late start for planting the corn at the Bose Family Corn Maze this year.

The 2012 Bose Corn Maze in Cloverdale pays tribute to B.C.’s Turkey Farmers.

The Bose Family Corn Maze in Cloverdale has opened – just in time for the Labour Day long weekend.

A wet, cold spring meant a late start for planting the corn at the family owned and operated maze, located one block south of 64 Avenue on 156 Street.

Always a popular attraction for families, teens and even corporate retreats, it’s open from Aug. 30 to Oct. 21, a little later in the season than is ordinarily the case.

Spring rain and defective flood boxes delayed planting by almost a month, Novy Bose told the Reporter last week (“Bose corn maze opens soon,” Aug. 23).

This year’s design honours B.C.’s turkey farmers – a nod to the Bose family’s turkey farm operations.

The long-running maze attraction includes a campfire to gather around for roasting marshmallows, a sand box, hay jump, pumpkin patch, and slides, plus a country store selling locally-grown vegetables.

Over the holiday long weekend, the maze will be open from noon to 8 p.m. (time of last admission) Aug. 30, 31 and Sept.1, and from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 2 and 3.

From Sept. 4 on, the maze is open Thursdays and Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 8 p.m., Sundays and holiday Mondays from noon to 4 p.m.

The maze is reserved for booked groups of 15 or more Mondays to Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m.

Admission is $7 for adults, $5.50 for kids aged 5 to 18, and it’s free for kids four and under and seniors aged 65 and over.

Please note: it’s cash only.
