Twists and turns of fun in Temecula

October 17, 2012 by  

For the next two weekends, a Harvest Festival will take place at the Big Horse Feed and Mercantile, 33320 Temecula Pkwy, Temecula, and the Big Horse Corn Maze is also a place in which locals can lose themselves this month, making two events that printing companies are bound to be called upon to promote.

The corn maze encompasses more than 11 acres and is composed of live corn stalks of around six or seven feet in height. It will be open every day through Halloween. Children’s activities include piglet races, a hitting cage, mini-maze, pony rides, bouncy house and slide, corn cannon, duck races, pumpkin bowling, and face painting.

Groups of 30 or more should preregister. It takes approximately 45 – 90 minutes to navigate the maze and air inside the maze is about five degrees warmer than the outside temperature, so dress appropriately. Visitors should bring water, sturdy walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, and layered clothing in case the weather gets warmer or colder during the day. Navigating the maze is equivalent to walking two to three miles. Leashed dogs are allowed. The maze is handicap and stroller accessible but the pathways are dirt so visitors should exercise caution. To find out more about the maze, call (951) 389-4621.

For the Harvest Festival, active military personnel and their families receive half price admission with ID. Parking is $3 per vehicle and the proceeds will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

The Harvest Festival will be held Saturdays and Sundays, October 20 – 21 and October 27 – 28, open from 10:00 am – 4:00. The maze is open over roughly the same hours at weekends and 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm weekdays.
