ANDERSON, Calif - Historic Hawes Farms has been bringing joy and fear to the North State for more than a decade.
"So many pictures. Some of these kids were little ones and are now doing the haunts so it’s just the whole cycle," said owner Greg Hawes.
One of the most popular parts of Hawes Farms is the maze.
My news director challenged me to conquer the maze. Challenge accepted.
Now, coming up with fresh ideas to scare and entertain people might sound like fun and you'd be right.
"It’s really fun," said Hayley Sawyer, an employee at the maze. "It’s really rewarding we get to come up with all our own ideas before the season starts and watch it come to life."
They're so good at it at times they even scare themselves.
"We get creeped out here sometimes we'll be working and we hear something that should not be going on," Sawyer said. "The corn makes noise it moves, it gets weird sometimes."
Action News Now took a trip in a helicopter to get a birds-eye view of the maze and its theme: family.
It has a design of a family holding hands.
"We've had enough frustrations with the fires and the smoke and now It’s time to get into fall enjoy some family fun,” Hawes said.
