Just 1 Week Left! Don't Miss the Corn Maize

This fall I visited a corn maize for the first time.  The Baton Rouge area corn maize is north of Denham Springs on Hwy.16.  Corn Maize 2009 Baton Rouge Louisiana AreaThe maize is a journey thru the field with clues for your family to solve at each turn to help you not get lost.  It engages every member of your family, even the younger ones.  For example one of the clues involves singing the song "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and deciding the direction from that song.  Threre are many other twists and turns; so don't go too close to dark unless you bring a flashlight!  For the more adventursome there is a haunted trail after dark on some evenings.  Call to be sure before you go.

In addiiton my family loved the puppets that sang songs in the barn area where everyone gathers to catch a "cow Train"  There are 2 types of rides:  one a fast train and the other a bucking cow train.  This was a highlight of our trip.

Additionally, there are duck rases where plastic ducks compete on water flowing from old fashioned hand pumps. (It will use up lots of your family's extra energy pumping that water!)
