Heeding a call from Maize Valley Winery – my favorite family autumn destination – I took a brief hiatus from, well, my current hiatus to cover an appearance there today by very special guest, Mr. Megasaurus, the fire-breathing, car-eating dinosaur. But before and after the jet-setting robot appeared, I took some time to breathe in the Maize Valley way of life, where kids run, jump, climb and play the old-fashioned way.
Before presenting the first in this series – a group of shots taken while kids of all ages climbed the haystacks in the quickly fading light – a word to the wise: For those of you who haven’t been to Maize Valley (just a hop, skip and jump from downtown Hartville), they offer year-round festivities including delicious Vinter’s dinners, cruise-in’s, trail runs, a Farmathalon, an art and wine festival, balloon lift-offs and tons more activities geared to various age groups, from tots to adults only. As well, people travel from far and wide to visit this local winery, eatery, gift shop and all-around great entertainment venue.
