Corn shootin' and Hay ridin' at the South Texas Maize - Family Love In My City

Corn shootin' and Hay ridin' at the South Texas Maize

Friday, October 21, 2011

Looking for something more than just a pumpkin patch? 
More than an October festival? 
Then, the South Texas Maize in Hondo, Texas may be what you are looking for!

There is a fee to get on the grounds ($10 for adults/$8 for kids 4 and up), which includes the maze, the big barrel slide, wheel barrel races, climbing hay bales, goats, hay ride and the Little Poppers Play Pen.



Activities that you are charged a fee for are 
the corn popper, barrel ride, corn shooter and pumpkins!


As far as food, there are a lot of great options -  brisket/sausage tacos, corn dogs, burgers, a tater explosion, corn on a cob, sweet tea, freshly squeezed lemonade and made to order kettle corn. 
At our visit, lines were long, but bring your's worth it!

I purchased our tickets half off from a deal website ($18), but there are military and group discounts. Please check their website for special promotions. As a family of 4, we probably spent $60 on the grounds, for food, games and pumpkins.
But one of the best things about this place is that you can bring in your own ice chest/food and have your lunch or snacks at a picnic table, in the shade, right on the grounds!

Hope you get a chance to visit, we had a great time!

A friend of mine was just telling me she went to this corn maze and I made her promise to shoot me photos so I could blog it for folks in Laredo on Critters And Crayons- but I see,, I really just need to add your link to the Laredo Community Round-Up and amplify via social media! Thanks for writing about this place! Shooting your links out to friends asking about Fall activities in SA now! Tricia from KBN
