Silver lining time: The coronavirus pandemic has at the very least made us appreciate the simple pleasures in life a little more than we did before. Enjoying an afternoon or evening at a corn maze, for example, might have been the kind of thing you considered before, but never pulled the trigger and bought a ticket. This fall, though, a trip to the Colville Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch & Market might just be the highlight of your season. A stroll through Knight Farms’ 12-acre maze, or the hunt for your perfect Halloween pumpkin, could be the perfect way to shake your pandemic doldrums and get some fresh air in the process. While you’re there, you can pick up some pie pumpkins for Thanksgiving, too, or any number of fresh veggies for your cooking pleasure.
Through Oct. 31; open Mon-Thu from 4 pm-dusk, Fri from 4-7 pm, Sat-Sun from 11 am-7 pm • $8/ages 13+, $6/ages 5-12 • 73 Oakshott Rd., Colville • colvillecornmaze.com
