Harrodsburg corn maze encourages visitors to vote
HARRODSBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – If choosing a candidate is a bit of a struggle for you, a farm in Harrodsburg is sympathizing, and encouraging visitors to slog through the field and vote anyway. Literally.
This year, The Devine’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch has designed a corn maze using the Presidential Election as its theme.
This will be the ninth year that the Devine’s have opened up their family farm in Mercer County to guests from all across the state to enjoy fall activities. The highlight of many of the visitors is their ten acre corn maze that includes a design for all to navigate.
“We always like to create a maze that is based on a current event and there’s not a hotter topic than this year’s election. So, I decided to create the Democratic Donkey and the Republican Elephant as a way to maybe encourage everyone to get out and vote in November.” says Jason Devine, maze designer. Previous mazes have included Kentucky and all of its counties, World Equestrian Games logo, the Final Four logo from 2011, the UK National Championship logo in 2012, FFA and 4-H in 2013, the Armed Forces in 2015, and Triple Crown Winner, American Pharaoh in 2016.
Devine’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch, owned by Glenn & Martina Devine in Harrodsburg, offers hayrides to the pumpkin patch, bonfires, petting area, hay maze, giant slide, tube swings, trike track, corn hopper, zip lines and more. Admission includes a pumpkin for everyone and all activities except zip lines. The Devine’s will open to the public on September 9th and run through October 31st when it will become the “Field of Horror” for Halloween.
