It’s that time of year again: the season when people feel compelled to get lost in a field of corn. The biggest and best place to do so is in Shakopee. Since 1997, the Peterson family has hosted a fall festival with a giant maze as the centerpiece (the “Sever” name comes from the farm’s founder, Sever Peterson, who set up shop in 1890). This year’s design, cut from hand again this year without the use of GPS, is in the shape of a T-Rex. If you get lost, use clues stationed at key points to help you find your way. Afterward, you can explore other fun, including a pumpkin patch, tractor pulls, playgrounds for kids, a petting zoo, and several corn pits to swim through. Find more details at
