Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know Fall's finest with today's Groupon: for $8, you get general admission for two at Diana's Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze in Cañon City (a $16 value). Each general admission includes:
- Entrance to the corn maze and other activities; children aged 5 and under may enter for free with a paying adult
- One pumpkin in the field to take home; although children aged 5 and under do not receive a free pumpkin, individual pumpkins range from $3 to $10
Open every weekend from September 17 to Halloween, Diana's Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze covers a small farm's family-owned fields with acres of fresh pumpkins and a giant three-acre corn maze. From within the labyrinth's dark, leafy stalks, children and adults can scramble for the correct escape route or spend up to an hour playing Farm Clue, a life-size version of the classic detective board game adapted for the corn maze. Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes pepper the field, littered among decoys such as basketballs and apples. Elsewhere on the farm, children can climb haystacks or catch up on the latest barnyard gossip from baby chicks and other loudmouthed animals at the petting zoo.
In addition to individual specialty pumpkins, Diana's Pumpkin Patch sells hot cider, cocoa, and caramel apples to enjoy at the farm's picnic tables overlooking the glebe of jack-o'-lanterns-to-be. In the evenings, families can roast marshmallows and s'mores over the fire pit while sharing ghost stories, sing-alongs, and time-share presentations.
