Hubb’s Farm plans July ‘Reveal Party’

Hubb’s Farm will hold a Reveal Party for its baseball-themed fall corn maze on Friday, July 13, beginning at 8 p.m. with the showing of the movie, “The Sandlot,” at 9 p.m.

The event is free to the public. Guests should bring pop-up chairs and blankets for the movie. They are also invited to bring food and drinks; however, drinks and popcorn will be available for purchase. No alcohol is allowed.

The 10-acre maze is part of the Hubb’s Farm Fall Festival, the largest in eastern North Carolina and now in its 11th year. The Fall Festival will be open weekends from Sept. 15-Nov. 10.

Special weekend themes are planned as follows: Celebrate “Field of Dreams” Maze, Sept. 15-16; Hay Bales and Hoofs Festival, Sept. 22-23; First Responders’ Weekend, Sept. 29-30; Thank A Farmer Weekend, Oct. 5-7; Pirate Invasion, Oct. 12-14; Freedom USA Weekend, Oct. 19-21; Halloween at Hubb’s, Oct. 26-28; Tough As A Farmer, Nov. 3-4; Fall Festival Finale, Nov. 10.

Hubb’s Farm bills itself as “Growing Crops of Fun,” with fall activities that include a pumpkin patch, tractor-drawn hayride, a double-barrel 17-foot high giant slide, a giant jump pillow, Rope Mountain, Cranky the Combine, Animal Acres, Toddler Town, Giant Sand Box, House of Corn, Human Foosball, the Hubb’s Express Train Ride, a covered picnic area and more.

In addition to the fun themed weekend activities, Hubb’s Farm promotes education with school tours in the fall and spring. Each school tour includes educational elements from history to math.

Other events at Hubb’s Farm include Hubb’s Express & Santa Too, Nov. 24; Christmas on the Farm, Dec. 14-16 and Dec. 21-23; and Topper’s EGG-ceptional Egg Hunt; and Spring Days, with dates to be announced.

Tammy and John Peterson started Hubb’s Corn Maze shortly after the birth of their son, Luke. Tammy grew up on the farm, but John had never been to a corn maze.

“We are creative people and we were asking ourselves, ‘What can we do for a youngster’ and also, we wanted something for families to do here in Sampson County,” Tammy said.

Being the creative people that they are, the corn maze evolved into “Crops of Fun,” a whirlwind of entertainment activities involving three seasons – fall, Christmas and spring.
