LACOMBE, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2009) -

Editors note: There is an image and a video associated with this press release.

One of Alberta's most popular corn mazes, the Lacombe Corn Maze, has opened its doors to the public with a design that pays tribute to Travel Alberta's STAY campaign.

The corn maze covers 15 acres. The design features a family hiking across the province of Alberta among the prairies and mountains, alongside a wild rose, the provincial flower. This year's theme reflects the fun that families have exploring the corn maze - and the rest of Alberta.

The Lacombe Corn Maze draws thousands of visitors each year to its host of agri-tainment experiences. Fun for the family, on-site activities include pig races, pumpkin shoots and an animal farm. Visitors can also try out the first jumping pillow in Canada.

The corn maze is conveniently located along the Edmonton - Red Deer - Calgary corridor, within driving distance for much of the Alberta population. "Get lost" in this Alberta attraction today!

Quotes
"We also have duck races, pig races, fire pits, a concession and a pumpkin blaster. People can spend a whole day here."

"The maze is interactive with trivia questions located at ten posts throughout the maze. If you give the right answer, you get the right directions."

"We have Corn Cops who wander through the maze to help people find their way out."
-Owner Linda Kraay
