Yesterday was a perfect Fall day and we had so much fun visiting the Corn Maze in the Plains! Voted as the TOP corn maze attraction in the DC area; but that’s not all that can be enjoyed at this fun FALL attraction. It’s great for all ages!
Located just 6 miles outside of Haymarket, VA, the Corn Maze in the Plains was a nice, smaller Fall activity that we stopped by at this weekend. This is a great park for all ages, whether you have kids or no kids- entertainment for all! Their biggest attraction is hands down their Corn Maze, which is themed yearly. This year the theme of the maze is “Maze Attack”. which means the maze is in the shape of a shark. Our boys thought this was really cool, but were equally impressed by all the other activities.
In addition to the popular Corn Maze, there is also an Obstacle Course, little kids hay maze, tunnel slides, barrels for the kids to roll around in, pumpkin sling shot, a spider web for the kids to climb on a rope maze, hay ride and much more!
In addition to all the day time features, they also have an evening night maze, click here for times and dates. This truly is a great place because, although there is so much to do, you can always see where the kiddos are playing and exploring. There are picnic tables spread out throughout the whole area. I highly recommend putting this on your Fall schedule to visit!
Every year we visit Cox Farms in Centreville, VA for their Fall Festival. Cox Farms puts on a great Fall Festival from September-November with lots of things for the family to do including huge slides, hayrides, Goat Village, live entertainment, barnyard animals and of course the pumpkins! There is something for every age and size when you go to Cox Farms. The area where it is held mostly dirt, grass or gravel so it makes it easy for strollers and wagons to get around. The restrooms are all clean porta potties and scattered all over the festival.
The Fall Festival is known for it’s colorful cutouts of popular cartoon characters and pumpkins. Hillside slides are a huge attraction and located on top of little hillsides. There is plenty to do with the little ones including checking out the barnyard animals that are penned throughout the festival. If you want to meet the many goats that Cox Farms has head to the Goat Village to feed, pet and watch the goats walk around the ramp system.
The pictures do not do the Festival justice not to mention there are too many large slides to put up. When it’s time to leave the festival you are given a free pumpkin with every paid admission. The exit to the festival takes you through the Festival Market where you can purchase large pumpkins,fresh produce, baked goods, kettle korn and candied apples. If you like having fresh produce you can always stop by the Cox Farms Corner Market during the Spring and Summer.
If you live in South Riding, Chantilly, Centreville, Aldie or Stone Ridge you are just a short trip away from the Annual Festival and Corner Market!
