ABOUT "Field of Screams - The Maize"
We have the scariest corn maze in the area! The maze, which features seven acres of twists and turns carved into a corn field, is one of the biggest and most popular events sponsored by GRIP every year. The opening-night activities will feature a strongman competition at 4 p.m., a performance by the bluegrass group Bright Water Junction at 6 p.m. and a fireworks display at dark. Proceeds will go to Ozark Food Harvest. The maze will remain open until Nov. 1, and will include family friendly attractions such as hay rides, movie nights on Friday and Saturday evenings, games, animals and rides for children. Beginning on Oct. 3, the maze will kick off its “Field of Screams” tour, in which the maze will be populated by ghosts and goblins.
