This family-friendly festival runs from October until November and includes a giant seven-acre corn maze. The challenging maze can trap even the savviest of visitors. Try the mini hay maze for a more relaxed adventure with the kids.
Tolmachoff Farms is about as local as you can get. It’s been a family run farm in Glendale for four generations.
