Local Corn Maze Unveils Retro Theme for 2017
From the USA Today to late night TV, this Treasure Valley corn maze created a lot of buzz in 2016. In 2017, they're shaping their maze in the likeness of one of the most iconic video games in history.
Last year, The Farmstead earned national attention after creating Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon's likeness in corn. Their "Fallon at the Farmstead" design went viral and several Treasure Valley residents extended invitations to Fallon to come visit it in person. Unfortunately, Jimmy turned the invitations down since he had to stay in New York City to film the show. He did, however, send his stunt man, "Hashtag Panda," to parachute into the maze for a segment on the show.
With all the attention the Fallon maze got, the Treasure Valley's been dying to know what the Farmstead was growing this year! And we finally have the answer...
That's right! 2017's maze will feature Namco's famous 1980s video game, Pac-Man!
2017 Farmstead Season Opens Mid-September
So just how long will you have to wait to experience life size Pac-Man? The 2017 Farmstead Season opens on Friday, September 22nd. Patch, the Farmstead's famous mascot, has a lot up his sleeve for the 21st season.
Friday Night Fireworks are back throughout the season, which means you'll want to take a break from the Pac-Man maze, Field of Screams or mini maze to catch the show at 8:30 p.m.
They'll also be hosting special event days for scouts, grandparents, hometown heroes, canines, special needs and homeschool students. And no season at The Farmstead would be complete without their FREE trick-or-treat event "Candy in the Corn." If you want to plan ahead, it'll be 3-6 p.m. on Saturday, October 8th!
