2017 “Chicago Cubs #FlytheW” Maze
Relive thrill of Cubs WS Win:
“Come get lost in the W!”
Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm in Lockport continues to knock it out of the park. This year announcing that its 2017 15-acre corn maze has been cut to honor the World Champion Cubs’ Historic 2016 Win with the theme #FlyTheW.
Creating a custom corn maze actually starts several months before the corn is even in the ground, and, contrary to what most people believe, is actually cut while still only ankle high. It then will grow big and tall into the pattern previously designed and laid out in the field, like this photo.
Everyone is invited to come out to try their luck in navigating through the maze for the W! We encourage everyone who takes on the challenge to post their triumph using #FlyTheW.
The #FlyTheW maze opens Saturday, September 23 at Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm, and will be open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 6 p.m. through Halloween. *Cubs Maze only open Weekends and Columbus Day*
About Our Corn Maze
One hot fall September day in 1956 Farmer Paul’s brother Art, at the age of only 2, left on an adventure. He started out by leaving the safety of the front yard with his little red wagon to join dad only 300 feet away. He did this by way of the cornfield. It did not take long before he really did not know which way to go. So he just kept walking, thinking all he had to do was walk a little more. He continued through the cornfield that by now was quite hot. He got more and more frightened with each step he took.
By lunchtime mom and dad began looking frantically for their then youngest son with no success. The neighbors, police and even the Stateville prison guards were called to find Art. After checking all the buildings and even dredging the horse tank with a pitch fork there was only one place left he could be, the CORNFIELD. After hours of searching, little Artie was found over a mile away, through the hot corn field, eating cookies at a neighbor lady’s house.
15 Acres and 5 miles of paths to choose from! *Weather Permitting*
