Bowersox corn maze debutsWritten by Kristen Criswell | | firstname.lastname@example.org
This fall, The Butterfly House in Whitehouse is allowing area residents to get lost in Crystal Bowersox’s hair.
The Butterfly House is honoring Bowersox with a corn maze dedicated to the “American Idol” runner-up.
“Bowersox has had a positive impact on Toledo and Northwest Ohio as a whole. We thought why not carry that excitement into the fall,” said owner Duke Wheeler.
This year’s theme came from Wheeler’s daughter.
The Bowersox design offers four different mazes with varying skill levels. The mazes vary in length from 0.7 miles to 3 miles.
“It’s good old America sit back and relax and have fun,” Wheeler said.
The season kicks off Sept. 12 and runs through Oct. 31. The maze made national news in 2008 with a maze of then-GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
During the evening, The Butterfly House lights bonfires and offers hot dogs and hot chocolate, Wheeler said.
Admission anges from $7 to $8. Kids 5 and younger are free. Discounts for seniors are available.
Coupons are also available on the website.
This year, Wheeler said he hopes to raise money for victims of the June 5 tornadoes.
