ROAD TRIP WORTHY: Bradford Sunflower Maze Opening This Weekend
Here's something for your late-summer bucket list, frolicking in a sea of sunflowers.
Only about 30 minutes from Bangor, an annual sunflower maze is opening for the season. The Sun Flower Maze at Country Junction in Bradford will open Saturday, August 22. Etched in rows of tens of thousands of sunflowers is not one, but two mazes this year.
According to the family-owned sunflower farm, the mazes have "little surprises hidden inside" like last year. More details on the grande opening are coming soon. We'll update this article when more information becomes available.
Farther north in Aroostook country, the endless rows of sunflowers at Buck Farms in Mapleton are blooming. The majestic photo op can be accessed by designated field roads. According to a Facebook post, the owners ask "DO NOT remove any flowers from the field. If you would like to purchase sunflower seeds they are available in The Feed Shed across the road from the Mapleton Elementary School."
