EAU CLAIRE, Wis (WAX/WEUX) – A local horror-themed corn maze is going on their 12th year of supporting non-profits, but this year they added something different. Field of Screams Haunted Trail and Barn in Eau Claire came up with the decision to add a daytime version of their spooky event called “Family Fun Days.”
All proceeds go to Feed My People Food Bank, local athletic programs and 4-H.
Farm owner and event organizer, Jodi Thesing-Ritter, says the idea for the new addition came from the volunteers, “Our 4-H-ers wanted to try a daytime version of our trail because we often get asked, is it appropriate for kids? And because it has over 100 actors, it’s a pretty scary event. So, this was their idea to try to expand it so more children to enjoy.”
The daytime event ended Sunday, October 22nd. The Field of Screams Haunted Trail and Barn’s last day is October 28th.
