ABAC celebrates fall with corn maze

TIFTON — The Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village, which is operated by Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, will get into the swing of fall with a pumpkin patch and corn maze beginning Saturday.

Also scheduled will be two exhibitions at the museum at 1392 Whiddon Mill Road, Tifton. The first will feature a Creek Indian encampment, and the second will be a 19th century military encampment.

A variety of food will be on sale, including the traditional fare of boiled peanuts, chicken salad sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, barbecue chicken sandwiches and pimento cheese sandwiches.

The pumpkin patch and corn maze will open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each Saturday during October as a part of the regular admission. Turner County 4-H members will be doing face painting at the pumpkin patch Oct. 22 and 29.

For schools that schedule field trips, the cost per child is $4. This includes the corn maze, a train ride around the museum and a stroll through the pumpkin patch.
