Corn/Hay Maze Saturdays At Burden

  • LSU Agcenter Botanic Gardens 4560 Essen Lane Baton Rouge, LA, 70808 United States

Because of the summer's rainy weather, the annual corn maze at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden has been dubbed the Corn/Hay Maze for 2016. The annual event will kick off with a Corn/Hay Maze Festival on Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and continue with special events on subsequent Saturdays in October.

Instead of walking thorough alleys of corn, visitors will travel through paths among hay bales to get to a variety of activities, said Jeff Kuehny, director of the AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden.

The festival will feature a farm animal petting zoo, pumpkin painting, hay mountain climb, a corn crib where children can play, a kids zip line, a hayride and a giant slingshot. Pumpkins for painting will be on sale for $5.

Corn/Hay Maze Saturdays on Oct. 8, 15 and 22 will feature activities from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors will be able follow the hay maze to visit a farm animal petting zoo, climb a hay mountain, enjoy the kids zip line, take a hayride and shoot a giant slingshot.
