The Covington News - - Front page -

By Gabriel Khouli Colonel Cob’s will have tra­di­tional hayrides, a bon fire, pump­kins for sale from the patch, and tours of the farm’s crops and an­i­mals.

Some new at­trac­tions in­clude he­li­copter rides, pony rides, a corn can­non with tar­gets, a gi­ant slide, an in­flat­able cow jumper and a moun­tain of sand con­tain­ing trea­sure. Mitcham said she is also try­ing to set up a spooky hayride for the weeks lead­ing up to Hal­loween.

Mitcham said a new bar­be­cue busi­ness in Mans­field will be run­ning the con­ces­sion stand: Where’s the Smoke Bar­be­cue and Ca­ter­ing owned by Sandy and Terry Tread­well.

In ad­di­tion to the en­ter­tain­ment as­pect, Mitcham said she and hus­band Tommy are al­ways try­ing to pro­vide ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren and school groups, like ed­u­ca­tional movies and au­dio record­ings about farm­ing and farm life. She said the farm is a work­ing farm and pump­kins and other items will be for sale.

Mitcham said she is declar­ing Septem­ber Hero Month at Colonel Cob’s. All three week­ends the maze is open in Septem­ber, the 11, 18 and 25, all teach­ers, mil­i­tary per­son­nel, law en­force­ment of­fi­cers, EMTs, fire­fight­ers and youth leaders will get into the maze free with their ID badge.

Tick­ets start at $8 for the maze and at $4 for the hay rides. Com­bined tick­ets are avail­able. He­li­copter and pony rides cost ex­tra.

For any more in­for­ma­tion about the maze visit col­cob­scorn­ or call Kevin or Emy Mitcham at (770) 855-6563 or (770) 786-8805.
