11th annual Corn MAiZE pays tribute to Buddy Holly

SHALLOWATER, TX (KCBD) -

James and Patti Simpson have been planning and preparing the 11th annual Corn MAiZE for months, and now they're ready to unveil it.

"We try to make the design something that is regional, you know, that people in our area would recognize," James Simpson said.  "And so it has to do with Texas Tech or farming or, you know, Buddy Holly! And with this being his 75th birthday coming up, it worked out real good!"

The MAiZE will be open to the public September 10th until November 26th.

Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the maze as well as the hay rides, barn yard animals and cow train rides.

MAiZE admission is $8 and Non-MAiZE admission is $4. Children 4 and younger are admitted free. The MAiZE is open to the public Fridays from 5- 9 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m.  - 9 p.m. and Sundays from 2-  9 p.m. Flashlights are recommended after dark.
