2018 Corn Maze Design
Celebrating 45 Years of Canadian Rodeo
Kraay Family Farm is proud to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Canadian Finals Rodeo with a celebratory maze
In honour of the Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) inaugural appearance in Red Deer, the Kraay Family Farm is excited to announce that the 2018 corn maze design is CFR inspired. The maze covers over 15 acres and incorporates the Canadian Finals Rodeo logo featuring the fantastic saddle bronc, traditionally considered to be the “classic event” of the rodeo. In addition to the maze, the farm will incorporate the rodeo theme into the farm attractions and special events this year.
“Central Alberta has a passion for rodeo and we are eager to join in helping the Canadian Finals Rodeo make its first year in Red Deer a-MAZE-ing,” says co-owner of Kraay Family Farm, Rachel Kraay. “CFR brings thousands of visitors from all over North America together and we’re excited to be a part of the event and look forward to all the fun.”
The Kraay Family Farm believes that the Canadian Finals Rodeo maze design and their partnership with the CFR is a perfect fit for the 2018 season as both promote family and community values and share farming roots. The Kraay Family will continue provide a place for families and friends to play together and build memories while experiencing a bit of farm and country life, and this year, with an extra rodeo twist.
Come out in the evenings in the Fall for our FLASHLIGHT MAZE! Bring your own flashlights, buy a glowstick or try the maze under a Full Moon for a natural way to walk lit paths at night! The maze is not lit up with yard lights so when the nights get darker the maze gets darker (earlier) too – try it in the light and the dark for two completely different experiences.
Games in the Maze
Passport to fun! In the maze entrance you’ll find your choice of passports (trivia sheets) filled with questions that correspond to numbered posts in the maze. Find the post, match the number, answer the question correctly and you’re on your way out! If you answer incorrectly, you’re still on your way but it may take you a few more twists and turns.
