Corn Maze Shows Bobcat Spirit

Posted: Updated:
MANHATTAN -

The Montana State University Bobcat spirit is shown in all sorts of ways. This year, a couple designed its annual corn maze for the MSU Bobcats.

"There is one Bobcat head, helmet and a football," said John Brouwer, corn maze owner.

For four years, John and Rose Brouwer have been creating a corn maze at their farm in Manhattan and each year there is a new theme.

"We had a little corner of the farm that was hard for us to irrigate. We thought that would be a good place for it," said John Brouwer.

This year, the theme is the MSU Bobcats. Past themes include Yellowstone and the treasure state. Rose Brouwer said there are three different reasons why they do the maze, year after year.

"First, it's a community event just for youth groups and school groups. Secondly, it's a little bit of income for us and thirdly to maintain some of these older buildings," said Rose Brouwer.

There's also a game throughout the course. Animal signs are scattered in the field. Whatever animal the kids do not find in the maze is the one that stole the tractor.

"It's just fun to have those kids here," said Rose. "We have miniature animals and they love to look at that."

Manhattan Christian School second grade teacher, Leah Brouwer has been taking her kids to the maze since it opened in 2010.

"Even if you've come before, the maze is always different and the mystery in the maze is always different," said Leah.

She said it's a great way for kids to understand agriculture.

"It's great for the kids to see animals to be able to be outside on a wagon in the corn and get a little dirty," said Leah.

Rose expects about 3,000 people to go through the maze this year.

The maze is open Fridays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturdays 2 to 8:30 p.m.. Now until October 26.

If you wear your Bobcat attire on Saturday, you will receive $1 off your admission.
