This year's corn maze at Richardson Adventure Farm will feature an Illinois bicentennial theme.

In celebration of Illinois’ bicentennial, the Richardson family is tailoring the theme of this year’s corn maze to landmarks that represent the Prairie State.

The 28-acre rectangular maze at Richardson Adventure Farm in Spring Grove will be bordered by outlines of the Mississippi River and Lake Michigan, and feature images of Chicago skyscrapers, Navy Pier, bridges, barns and tractors, according to a news release.
A profile of Abraham Lincoln and the state Capitol are etched into the center of the maze.

Previous themes of the maze include the Cubs’ World Series win, the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup win and the 50th anniversary of “Star Trek.”

New this year, the farm will have a taco truck and wood-fire pizza truck, according to the release.

Richardson Adventure Farm is open from Thursdays through Sundays from Sept. 1 to Nov. 4, plus Labor Day and Columbus Day. For information, visit www.richardsonadventurefarm.com.

Admission to the corn maze in September is $17 for those ages 13 and older and $14 for ages 4 to 12. Weekend prices during October and November are $19 for ages 13 and older, $17 for those ages 4 to 12, and free for age 2 and younger.
