KAMLOOPS - Tranquille Farm Fresh put a lot of thought into the second annual corn maze and if the smiles this weekend at the Halloween Extravaganza are any indication, it was worth it.
An aerial image was used to to plan the design and then early in September crews went to work using global positioning system (GPS) technology and several weed whackers to carve out a maze in five acres of corn. The labour intensive work took a couple days and within the week the corn maze opened to the public.
Then on Friday Tim McLeod was joined by family and friends in putting together the final details for a Halloween Extravaganza. Pumpkins were brought in, seasonal decor added to tables, extra lighting to guide drivers to parking areas and lots of actors to creep out unsuspecting maze-goers as they try to navigate the complex design. As evening descends colour-changing lights and fog up the creep factor along with spooky sounds and lights coming from one of the old buildings nearby. Screams and laughter fill the air as hundreds of people take in the seasonal fun.
