Herald Staff Report
The growing of the corn maze is on schedule at the Ohnward Fine Arts Center and will be open to the public each Saturday and Sunday, from Oct. 6 to Oct. 28.
The Ohnward Fine Arts Center corn maze began as an idea to bring the community together to provide a safe, family-friendly environment for creating memories. Scattered throughout the many passageways of the maze are checkpoints with questions about local history, agriculture and local geography. Those interested in a different event can visit the maze from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 27.
The maze is located at 1215 E. Platt St. in Maquoketa, on U.S. 64, across the street from the Jackson County fairgrounds.
Tickets are $5 for ages 14 and older and $3 for ages 5 to 13. The event is open from noon to 5 p.m., with tickets sold until 4 p.m. Children younger than 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
