Asure sign of fall is the opening of McNab's Corn Maze on seven acres in Yellow Point. Featuring the maze, hay rides and petting zoo, the maze is a fun stop for the whole family. Don't forget to pick up some delicious corn while there. The brainchild of Murray McNab, the attraction draws people from everywhere. This year's maze is designed in support of the Coco Cafe & Cedar Opportunities Co-Operative. The co-op was created as a means of making our community more inclusive for people with developmental disabilities. The bonus is that it's a great place to have a cup of coffee and a bite to eat. The maze is open from 10 a.m. to dusk.
