Mt. Pleasant corn maze celebrates breast cancer awareness

October 11, 2013 by  

To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and the 20th anniversary of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant opened its annual corn maze by going pink on the last day of September. Most likely poster printing and other printing services are being used by the Plantation to announce this celebration, its pumpkin patch, and other attractions with a fall and Halloween theme.

The corn maze and pumpkin patch is eight acres in size and now carries a design to mark this special anniversary of breast cancer awareness in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. The Lowcountry affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will receive a portion of the proceeds from the Plantation’s pumpkin patch.

The design of this year’s corn maze is a very complicated and complex one, and provides a unique experience to explore the twists and turns of the maze, while challenging adventurers to get from the start to the finish. In addition, posted throughout the maze will be facts relating to breast cancer awareness so as to make it an informative and educational experience.

Pumpkins have also be made available for picking this month, and a retail tent will feature decorative items with a fall theme, jellies and jams, candy, fresh produce, and toys for children. Other activities, particularly for the kids, include a petting zoo and pony rides, a giant slide tower and rock climbing wall, a goat walk and rabbit enclosure, and a playground.
