Our goal for each school is 100 coats for the month of October; this will be a total of 900 coats by the end of the month!

This is event is optional. This is not a school sponsored event. Parents must provide transportation, do not drop off. Also students must have a chaperone. Therefore, if you are coming as a group, there should be one adult per 10 kids. Chaperones must go with the children and pay for a ticket (pre-order $13). Adults who are just waiting and watching may purchase a VIP ticket at the venue for $5.00. This information is from the venue. Also, please remind your children to be respectful at the Corn Maze. It is a very fun event, but not a ticket to run wild. Thank you for your cooperation.
