Celebrating Halloween and fall doesn’t have to be scary, why not take a ride down through the corn maze at Eliada Homes Fields of Fun this year.

Eliada’s 2016 Annual Corn Maze will be open through Oct.23, so stop by and join in the festivities!

This year’s theme is “Going the Distance for Eliada Kids.” This year's design features an airplane, clouds, a globe, and local business and title sponsor, MB Haynes.

The maze offers a giant jumping pillow for children and adults, a cow train and hayride that will drive you around the field and through a portion of the corn maze. Or, load the corn cannons with an ear of corn, aim, and shoot at one of the giant pumpkin men targets.

Guests may also enjoy the story trail featuring Spookley the Square Pumpkin — perfect size “maze” for the littlest folks in your group! Plus, there are giant tubes slides and a spider web climber for all to enjoy.

Eliada Homes is a non-profit agency founded in 1903 serving the children and families of Western North Carolina. At one time, the 200-acre campus was a working farm. They still hold Western North Carolina’s largest corn maze, along with various other fall farm activities. It’s run as a nonprofit; 100 percent of the proceeds benefit needy children and families in the area.

The maze is open from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Wednesday-Thursday, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday, and from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $15, $10 for children. For more information, visit cornmaze@eliada.org or call 828-254-5356, ext. 300.
