Montgomery Corn Maze Celebrates America For Fall

MONTGOMERY, Texas A popular fall destination has sprouted up once again just outside the town of Montgomery, and you could get lost in it.

It's the P-6 Farms "Maize Maze," which is an annual transformation of a corn crop into a giant corn maze for the fall season.

News 3 got a special bird's eye tour of this year's design.

It's all about celebrating America.

It's a corn field maze here just out side of Montgomery.

The corn is growing high as it does every fall at P-6 Farms but there's a patriotic design you can only see from above.

News 3 got a helicopter tour of the corn maze that opens to the public this weekend.

This year's theme; God Bless America complete with some stars and stripes, and a bald eagle head in the right corner.

It even says, "In God We Trust."

Joseph Sackal of Georgetown is a family friend of the Poole family that runs the farm, did his first helicopter ride with us.

"I think that was amazing. I'm really surprised of how intricate the whole thing turned out. You know what I mean. I mean you see it down here and it's weird to see it from up there," Sackal said.

11-year-old Tanner Poole has been ready for this fall fun for weeks trying it out.

"Well the first time it took five minutes… But we had a map," he laughed.

With eight acres to explore you can expect to spend upwards of an hour getting lost in this corn maze. But just how do they do this design? Well that's a well-kept secret.

Bo and Carey Poole of P-6 Farms jokingly say it could be the work of aliens.

"It might be. I think they're still lurking around," said Carey Poole.

"Yeah we're super excited. It's our favorite maze so far in tribute to God and our country, so we're super excited for everyone to see it," she added.

A creation of corn you have to see to believe.

This is the third year P-6 Farms has made a fall corn maze.

Previous designs include a Texas Flag and a tribute to the Houston Astros.

The "Maize Maze" opens this Saturday to the public.

Tickets for ages 12 and up are $10.50, $8.50 for ages 4-11 and children 3 and under are free.
