Corn cannons, corn sling-shots, a corn cannon, corn-shucking contests and corn cannon challenges all are part of the corn-flavored corniness that are part of the Corn Maze Festival at Engwalls.

The festival is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at Engwall’s Garden Center, 4749 Hermantown Road. Festival admission is free, regular maze rates apply, and $1 from every ticket will be given to the Northern Harvest Food Bank.

The event also includes some less-corn-specific activities like music, games, food and hay rides.
