If you get lost in this yearâ€™s corn â€œmaizeâ€ at Sauvie Island, just try to picture in your head what the Portland Timbers logo looks like. It might just help you find the exit. We’re going to be featuring some fun things to do in Portland this fall. We’re starting with a tribute to Portland’s newest team, The Timbers.
This year the Portland Maize (maze made of corn rows, get it?) has carved the Timbers logo into its corn field. Starting in September, hoards of people will flock to Sauvie Island to try to make their way through the labyrinth.
Craig Easterly, the Portland Maize founder, says the maze is divided into two sections. The second section is more challenging than the first. Youâ€™ll also be able to check out an overhead view of the Timbers design from two observation bridges mid-maze.
The Portland Maize will be open every day in September from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will be open later on select days in October.
Admission to the maze is $5 for people age 6-12 and older than 60. Admission is $7 for adults and kids age 13 and up. Kids age 5 and younger get in free.
