With year-long Canada 150 celebrations in full swing, a Surrey corn maze has decided to join the party as well.
Located at 64th Avenue and 156th Street, Bose Corn Maze has recently opened for its 18th year of operation.
The maze, which sits on 17 acres of the farm’s 25 total acres, features a different design every year.
This year, the family-run operation is paying homage to Canada’s milestone birthday, through it’s Canada 150 design.
And while each year’s design takes work, this year presented some unique challenges – particularly when it came to back-and-forth weather patterns.
“We had a bit of a dry spell in early April and were getting fields ready to plant,” said Novy Bose. “May came and with it, a lot of water. The biggest challenge this year was getting the water off the fields.”
Bose told Daily Hive that as result of weather issues, the maze was a month late in planting, which took place on June 15.
But the work doesn’t end when the planting takes place; the maze still has to be designed.
“The work is in marking the field and cutting out the design,” Bose said. “This has about 50 man-hours.”
Despite this year’s challenges it seems the work has already paid off, as early visitors to the site seem to have enjoyed their experience.
“We had a family on Saturday night that are here from Saskatchewan and they loved it,” said Bose. “They tried a maze in Calgary once and thought it was too easy. This one they liked.”
Now, everyone is invited to come check it out and celebrate Canada at the same time.
