Better Than Candy Corn
No kidding, I love the Maize Maze at the Rio Grande Community Farm. But I'm kind of into mazes. I had a book of them that kept my crayon busy as a kid. And you know the end of The Shining where they're in that hedge maze? I've always thought it looks like fun, nasty old limping Nicholson and all. What the North Valley kid-friendly corn maze lacks in ax-wielding jerks it more than makes up for with a haybale city, farm animals and a pumpkin patch. Plus, it's haunted Oct. 26 through 28, and the night before Halloween. This year, the 7-acre puzzle is shaped like a frog, so expect to spot info about endangered amphibians as you make your way through. It's open all month long, typically on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. "Dannnnyyyyyyyy! I'm coming!" (Marisa Demarco)
