It’s that time of year again, when the ghosts and goblins and scarecrows gather forces and plot their shenanigans for the upcoming Halloween season. And their favourite spot to convene? Why our own spectacular corn maze, of course! They’ll be hanging around and haunting and hiding in an amongst the twisting turning maze for the next couple of weeks, so why not come down to our transformed Garden Centre and say Boo!

One of the great things about observing annual holidays is making and celebrating your own traditions. And at Fiesta Farms we’ve been doing that very thing for a few years now during the weeks that lead up to Halloween, and every year we do it it gets a little better. With Halloween lurking right around the corner, it means one thing; our corn maze is back, and it’s as fun and spooky as ever.

Our Garden Centre is the perfect spot for the corn maze, with plenty of room for twists and turns and surprises along each cornrow and around every corner. Look up, look down, peek into nooks and crannies, around bales of hay and through dry corn husks and dangling spiderwebs, you’ll find something to amuse and cast a spell on you and your little ones.

 

oh hello!

oh hello!

 

The maze is open now until October 31, Halloween, and you can visit it anytime during store hours, nine a.m. to eight p.m.on weekdays and nine to six on weekends.  In fact, for a spookier experience you might you want to visit after the sun goes down.

If you’re not sure you can muster the nerve to visit, you might want to have a sneak peek at this little video we shot of last year’s maze. This year’s model is just as fun, with a few extra surprises thrown in just to keep you on your toes. And feel free to share your experience on your social platforms, take as many photos as you like using the hashtag #Fiestacornmaze. Have a fun and safe Halloween!

A Corn Maze for Halloween!

Are you ready to be corn-founded and a-maized? If so you’ll be thrilled to know that Fiesta Farms has brought back our fantastic Corn Maze that was such a hit last year!

Installed outdoors in our Fiesta Gardens Centre, this fun-filled walk-through puzzle is sure to delight the whole family, and maybe even bewitch you a little!

“This is the second year we’ve done it,” says Dino Virgona, manager of the Fiesta Farms Garden Centre. “Michael, one of our staffers had been wanting to do it for a couple of seasons so last July we planned it out and made it happen. This year Michael, John, Chris and Ryan put it together.”

“The maze isn’t haunted,” Virgona adds. “There are skeletons hanging around but nothing that jumps out and scares the crap out of you. There are way more ways to get lost though, so be warned.”

Walk through it during the day for an entertaining stroll, or wait until the sun goes down- the maze stays open until eight p.m. each weeknight- to add a that little element of spookiness to your sauntering. You never know what lurks around the next corner, but for those who want a little hint, check out this video of last year’s maze.

International Women’s Day: Kate Aitken

kate_aitken_homehr

 

Tuesday is International Women’s Day, celebrated around the world every on March 8. Originally started back in 1909 in New York City to commemorate the strike of the women in the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union that occurred the year before, the day has since evolved around the world to honour, respect and celebrate the political and social achievements of women everywhere. And today we would like to give a shout out to one of the all-time greats when it comes to Canadian Women, Kate Aitken. Kate Aitken, born in 1891 in Beeton, Ontario, was a schoolteacher by the time she was 16, then successfully ran a chicken farm with her husband and got into radio broadcasting in the 1930’s somewhat by accident, filling in for an injured worker in a small radio station. By the end of the nineteen forties she was one of the best known broadcasters in Canada, with daily programs on the CBC that attracted millions of listeners. Continue »



Monday is Family Day

Is it just a coincidence-or is it fitting- that Family Day immediately follows Valentine’s Day? This Monday, February 15th is Family Day in Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, a holiday that was originally created so families could spend time with each other, but also because, let’s face it, we need a break in this bleak month; the last holiday was New Years Day and the next one doesn’t happen until Good Friday. That just won’t do. Continue »
