From Our Editors
Many traditional artists paint linen or sculpt stone. For an agri-artist such as Craig Easterly, though, a cornfield makes a perfectly good canvas. For more than a decade, Craig has been chiseling through the 12-foot stalks of his field to create what is from the ground a maze of rustling green tunnels and from above a stunning tableau of Portland themes and images.
For 2016, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the acclaimed TV special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Craig teamed up with Peanuts Worldwide to create a Peanuts-themed eight-acre corn maze. "Corn mazes are all about providing a fun and interactive experience for our visitors—even the adults feel like kids again! And that’s exactly what Peanuts does" he said in a 2016 press release. The largest maze since the original design was carved in 1999, the maze promises to test guests both physically and mentally with twists, turns, and dead ends.
Along with its mazes, Portland Maize also sprouts fall-centric family-friendly activities. Overall-clad patrons bounce along on free hayrides, get crowned king of the hay mountain, or mimic the beastly accents of farm animals in the big red barn.
