Families can find lots of places around East Tennessee to have fun for the Fall holiday.
(WBIR) Fall is here and that means a lot of seasonal activities are popping up around East Tennessee.
Oakes Farm in Corryton is one of several places now open for families to visit for fun.
"I have enjoyed watching the children on the slides, the pillow, the rat maze, and those little peddle carts. They have been absolutely wonderful," said Annietta Unrua of Knoxville.
Oakes Farm is in its 13th season and has lots to do for children and their parents, but one of the most popular attractions is its corn maze.
"We have two different corn mazes and in ours there are 12 hidden checkpoints. The goal is to make your way through and find each of the checkpoints," said David Black, owner of Oakes Farm.
Maple Lane Farms in Greenback is also now open. They also have a corn maze, which is a big hit with families.
"This is the best field of corn we've had in 15 years for a corn maze," said Maple Lane Farms owner, Bob Schmidt.
But as families maneuver through the corn mazes, little do they know some owners were a little worried about not having enough crop due to rain.
"We were actually about two weeks late on planting our corn because of the rain, but after that we had really good consistent rains and our fields drain really well and so we have a beautiful corn crop," said Black.
Oakes Farm also has beautiful pumpkins, which were at risk due to East Tennessee's record rainfall, but made it.
"We had a pretty good crop this year. Other farmers who we work with, we've seen good and bad. It all depends on how their fields were," said Black.
While many prefer to play outside, others like screaming inside a dark place. Frightmare Manor, which started its full schedule Friday night, is a popular place for thrill seekers.
"As soon as you get out of your car we're going to scare you because we want you to get your money worth when you come to Firghtmare Manor. So we're going to scare you as soon as you step foot onto our property until you get back to the safety of your car," said Chris Wooden with Frightmare Manor.
So whether you like screaming or laughing, there's a lot of fun to find around East Tennessee for the fall holiday.
