Orland, Calif.-- It's that time of year when everything feels a little 'spooky'.

For those of you ready to get into the Halloween spirit, the Country Pumpkin corn maze in Orland may be just the place for you.

Reporter Hayley Watts joins Country Pumpkins' .Marketing Director Beth Teplow for a behind-the-scenes tour at the 10 acres maze.

The corn maze takes about 25 minutes to get through.

They have 30 actors who play different roles - this year's theme is "Sally's nightmare" and all of the costumes and set design work around that story line.

This is a big deal, not just in Orland - it really brings in people from across the state.

Turnout's been good this year, with no rainy days so far!

The Gruenwald family started Country Pumpkins in 2000.

The family writes that the "love providing the community with a fun and unique family friendly adventure".

If you're a little worried about what's inside the maze itself, there's plenty of G-rated fun for the whole family, including a pumpkin patch, a petting zoo, country store and a hay pyramid slide.

The whole place is open through Halloween every October and the maze itself wraps up on the 27th.

Cooler and cloudier today, record heat expected today, then the chance for high fire danger or showers next week.
