PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island is ready for another year of fall fun and festivities.
The Maize is known for its creative designs. Last year’s design was a tribute to the Rose City. This year — another Pacific Northwest classic — Bigfoot.
Farmers wrote “We Believe” in the corn with Bigfoot’s print and an outline of the legend himself.
“He’s our iconic hero here in the northwest,” creator Craig Easterly said. “We decided to celebrate Bigfoot because some of us here actually believe in Bigfoot.”
A lot of work goes into creating the maze. Easterly started growing the corn this year in July.
“It grows really quick,” he said. “We didn’t have the heat we normally have this summer but it still grows 12-14 feet tall.”
The Maize has already been open since Labor Day and you can get lost in the corn through the Halloween.
At The Pumpkin Patch, you can also get your fill of farm animals, hayrides, a giant hay pyramid, tasty food and of course, picking your own pumpkin.
