HUNTERSVILLE - Historic Rural Hill marks the final weekend of this year’s Amazing Maize Maze with a canned food drive for the Angels and Sparrows Soup Kitchen. Bring a donation of canned food and get a buck off your admission.
The maze, on a 7-acres cornfield off Neck Road in Huntersville, will be open Friday through Sunday, Nov. 2-4, from 10am to 5pm. And if you’re looking for an adventure, try the nighttime flashlight maze Friday and Saturday beginning at 6pm (last tickets sold to those in line by 9).
This year, Rural Hill’s theme is an “Election Maze.” It’s one of the largest corn mazes in the Southeast, with about 2 1/2 miles of pathways in a working corn field. With Rural Hill volunteers and staff available to help when needed, the Amazing Maize Maze is designed to be navigated in 1-2 hours. Details at www.ruralhill.net.
Angels & Sparrows Soup Kitchen was established for the purpose of providing food, nourishment and a sense of community for those persons affected by hunger in Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson and the surrounding north Mecklenburg County areas. For more information, visit www.angelsandsparrows.org.
