Variety of activities growing this season at Lethbridge Corn Maze

Lethbridge Corn Maze photo - In addition to the petting zoo, goat snuggling and a variety other activities, a one-acre sunflower field has been added to the list of attractions at the Lethbridge Corn Maze.

Since its inception 22 years ago, it’s been an a-mazing experience.
As of the end of July, the Lethbridge Corn Maze has opened up for another summer, ready to give its customers the run-around in the best way possible while enjoying all the aspects of farm life.
In addition to the petting zoo, goat snuggling and a variety other activities, a one-acre sunflower field, complete with a kids maze, has also been added this year.
“We normally have the corn maze,” said Theo Slingerland, owner and operator of the Lethbridge Corn Maze. “This year, instead of one acre of corn, we added sunflowers just to try it out. There are a few small mazes in there. They’re blooming until the end of the month.”
The response to the new addition has been positive.
“A lot photographers and families are coming to take pictures. It’s actually been very encouraging and a very good response,” said Slingerland, adding the construction of the sunflower maze is similar to the corn maze.
“It usually takes me about two days to cut them out. It’s about 600 feet long and by 80 to 100 feet wide.”
Those not wandering the mazes – corn or sunflower – can enjoy the farm animal theme, including one always popular facet, the goat snuggling, which heads into it second year at the Lethbridge Corn Maze.
“That’s one of our biggest attractions. So we figured we would go with that,” said Slingerland.
While no appointments are necessary to visit the Lethbridge Corn Maze, the goat snuggling requires one. Appointments can be booked online at http://www.lethbridgecornmaze.com by clicking on goat snuggle sessions.
“We’ll be wrapping it up by the end of the month because by then the goats will be getting too big,” said Slingerland.
A list of other activities at the Lethbridge Corn Maze can be found on their website under Things To Do.
Since beginning 22 years ago, the Lethbridge Corn Maze and petting zoo continues to support four children through World Vision.
“The biggest thing that keeps us going is people do come out and enjoy it,” said Slingerland. “We’ll keep it going and try to expand it a little every year.”
The Lethbridge Corn Maze will be open until Oct. 31.
This month, the maze is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Hours in September and October are Monday to Thursday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.
On Saturdays the Lethbridge Corn Maze will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
