Get Lost While Celebrating Peanuts‘ “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” 50th Anniversary
Our family loves to attend fun fall events nearby. Finding something entertaining enough for our 13-year-old while still allowing our 3-year-old to participate can be a challenge. This time every year, we have a family night watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. This year, we were able to uniquely combine the two into one. “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” corn maze by day and movie by night.
Charles M. Schulz created “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” in 1966. “’The Great Pumpkin’ and cornfield mazes are two of the world’s greatest fall traditions, eagerly anticipated by fans every single year, and we’re so excited to bring them together for this landmark anniversary,” Shultz’ daughter Jill Schulz announced in a press release. “As we prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,’ it’s only fitting that we should find a tribute that’s both joyful and visually compelling, just as my father’s characters have been for more than 65 years.”
Over 90 farms decided to participate in Peanuts’, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” 50th celebration. Each farm created a corn maze featuring images of characters from the show. Our family attended Ken’s Korny Corn Maze in Garner, NC. First of all, upon entry, we received an orange card to punch at strategically placed stations throughout the maze. Along the path, we ran into many dead ends. As a result, Backtracking to find the next hole punch station several times made for fun memories and many laughs.
Our kids also enjoyed a very challenging rope maze.
Also, a corn box, seeing the animals, playing tic tac toe with pumpkins and climbing on all the play equipment were among the other activities they enjoyed. Happy kids, fun times and lots of laughs made for an a-MAZE-ing day together!
