There will be no anticipation of what graphic will be visible from the sky this year for the traditional Corn Maze at Corn Dawgs Fun Park in the Walnut Grove area of Loganville. Instead of the traditional announcement on what to expect coming up this fall, the park announced on its Facebook Page on July 12 that after nine years of being an autumn destination for thousands of families across northeast Georgia, it will not be opening this fall.
“I will miss seeing the smiles on the faces of our guests, both young and old,” said Misty Duren. “I feel fortunate that we were able to provide a place for families to come and have fun each fall and am so grateful to the Walton County community for their support over all these years.”
With a 7-acre maze that usually had a strong local or patriotic theme, Corn Dawgs offered many other traditional fall activities such as a pumpkin patch, farm hayrides, petty zoo, playgrounds and zip lines. There was even an ice skating rink a couple of times.
It would appear that the fun park “may not be reopening” in the future according to the release, but Corn Dawgs is not completely closing its gates. The annual Corn Dawgs Pro Rodeo, will go ahead on Friday and Saturday night of Aug. 31-Sept. 1. Gates open at 6 p.m. with the performance scheduled to start at 8 p.m. The facility will also be available to rent for special events.
Corn Dawgs could not immediately be reached for reasons for the closing. For more information and to find out about the rodeo, check the Facebook page.
