In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, many used the rallying cry of “Texas Strong,” including the owners of Circle N Maze. To show support for the survivors of Harvey, a corn maze owner in La Vernia, Circle N Maze, changed the maze design to create the words “Texas Strong,” according to a report from the Houston Chronicle. You can visit this maze and see it in person.

The owners, Drew and Caylin Herley, of Circle N Maze, did not originally plan to use the “Texas Strong” design for their 2017 maze. They said, “Seeing all of Texas come together in these awful circumstances was inspiring.” The pair decided to create a tribute to those who maintained their strength and helped others in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. This corn maze design opens on September 23. But it will only last until October when the maze will change in design. You’ll want to get there soon if you want to wander the “Texas Strong” maze.

This year, a portion of the proceeds from Circle N Maze will go toward Harvey relief efforts. This entertainment venue has many things to offer, including a pair of mazes in the 5.5-acre corn field. One of the mazes measures 2.5 miles long while the smaller maze is only 0.3 miles. The family-friendly facility has numerous activities for the entire family, and you can visit from September 23, 2017, through Halloween.

When you visit Circle N Maze, your entry fee covers the corn mazes and many other activities. A pumpkin patch gives you the chance to pick the perfect jack o’lantern pumpkin. And your kids can get an up-close encounter with farm animals at the petting zoo. Stacked hay bales offer old-fashioned fun to kids of all ages who want to climb and jump in the hay. When visiting, plan on a day filled with old-fashioned farm fun with your kids.

Since you cannot predict Texas weather in the fall, check the weather reports before you visit this corn maze. All the activities are outdoors, and you don’t want your day to get washed out by rain or cold weather. Dress appropriately for walking outside. If you want a challenge, plan to visit during September and again in October. The maze will change in October, and visiting multiple times will give you a chance to explore both designs. And make sure your phone is charged. You will want to get a lot of pictures while there.
