Pumpkin patch opens this weekend

MERIDIAN —     Hayrides, a 4 acre corn maze and pig races are few of the attractions at the Lazy Acres Pumpkin Patch in Chunky that opens today.

    The pumpkin patch will remain open each weekend in October from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday's and 1-5 p.m. on Sundays.

    The May family — Michael, Cathy and Mikayla — have decided this year to donate proceeds from the first weekend in October to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and are painting the patch purple     

    Activities include more than 25 rides and a chance to feed the farm animals.

    Armbands to enter the Pumpkin Patch are $8.50.    

    On Oct. 6 the pumpkin patch will host the Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis and The Hillbilly Run, a 5K obstacle course run.

    Register online for The HillBilly Run rand view a map of the farm obstacles. Those who are unable to run can show their support in the Great Strides walk on Team Maddie, which is a team formed in support of Chunky resident Madison Luke, 3, who has cystic fibrosis. Participants can also form their own teams from churches, schools or civic organizations.

    Lazy Acres is located 15 minutes west of Meridian. Take I-20 to the Chunky exit (No. 121). Go north one mile. Then turn left on Lazy Acres Road and go one mile. The farm is on the right.
