Bloody eyeballs, headless chefs and mindless zombies are making their way to Covert Farms for the Haunted Corn Maze this Friday and Saturday, from 3-8 p.m. For $9, thrill seekers can enjoy the Haunted Corn Maze, a family outdoor movie, smores and some of the other Family Fun Zone activities.

“This is a great way to enjoy some family time with the amazing friends and families found right here in the Okanagan Valley,” said Gene Covert, third generation owner and general manager of 600-acre Covert Farms. “We will also be trick or treating, enjoying the warmth from our fire pits, and having a howling good time under the almost full moon.”

From 3-5 p.m. enjoy the Halloween maze, intended for younger children. Then from 6-8 p.m. the witches won’t be able to hold back the gore and ghouls found within the maze itself.

Flashlights are a necessity for the corn maze and will be available for purchase on site. Bring a trick or treat bag to collect some pre-Halloween goodies and a chair or blanket to sit on during the movie.

All children 12 and under will need to be accompanied by an adult for the Haunted Corn Maze.

Tickets for the Haunted Corn Maze tickets are available at the Covert Farms Market, open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, or online at  www.covertfarms.ca. Partial proceeds will be donated to the South Okanagan Children’s Charity.

Keep your eyes and ears open for Covert Farms future events: The Head Smashed-in Pumpkin Jump, and The First Annual Moonlight Run, both taking place Nov. 3. More information can be attained by calling the Covert Farms Market (250-498-2824) or online at  www.covertfarms.ca.
