The 2013 Bose Corn Maze pays tribute to Historic Cloverdale.

The Bose Corn Maze and Veggie Patch has opened for the season. The popular, family-run Cloverdale corn maze, now in its 14th year of operations, is one of Surrey’s best-loved attractions.

It’s open over the Labour Day long weekend from 6-8 p.m. this Friday (Aug. 30), Saturday from noon to 8 p.m., and Sunday and Labour Day from noon to 4 p.m.

The 2013 maze pays tribute to historic Cloverdale with a design patterned on the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association’s logo – a steam engine, reflecting the area’s proud legacy as a transportation crossroads.

The giant maze sprawls across acres of dense corn rows, and is  divided into two halves. There are numbered posts at stops along the maze route. Each has a trivia question leading in a particular direction. A correct answer will lead to the next numbered post, and so on.

“Don’t worry, we haven’t lost anyone,” the website says.

Successive generations of the Bose family have been farming in Surrey since Henry Bose landed in B.C. in 1891.

Today, Novy and Mike Bose raise field crops as well as poultry. Their corn maze is a seasonal agritourism event that runs from late August to October.

The farm also sells vegetables: lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, red, white, and russet potatoes, kale, carrots, green onions, cucumber, bell peppers and tomatoes. Later on in the harvest, the farm sells pumpkins, too.

The entrance to the Bose Corn Maze and Veggie Patch is located one block south of 64 Avenue on 156 Street.

From Sept. 3 to Oct. 14, operating hours are 6-8 p.m., Saturday from noon to 8 pm., and Sunday and holiday Mondays from noon to 4 p.m. Mondays to Wednesdays are reserved for groups of 15 or greater. Call 778-578-5450 or email bosemaze@hotmail.com to request a group trip.

Admission is until closing time, and visitors have 2.5 hours to complete the maze, so don’t worry if you get a late start. But remember to bring your flashlight.
