Image via WikipediaOne of my favorite fun facts about living in Pittsburgh is that homewood cemetery is the location that Night of the Living Dead was filled. Well, after learning about this event – I realized that I have been misinformed. Regardless, Pittsburgh is still the birth place of this horror film and it is something to be celebrated, even if the scenes were filmed in Evans City. So head on up to Evans City to celebrate the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the film Night of the Living Dead with some of the original cast members too.
Image by remolacha.net fotos via FlickrI caught a glimpse of this thing from the article in the Post-Gazette last Friday and I can’t believe I didn’t find it sooner. The Coolspring Corn Maze is a 10 acre maze of cornfields, which is impressive enough but the whole maze is in the shape of a stage coach. This field of fun is located near Mercer, PA it is probably about an hour and a half drive away from Pittsburgh. This year’s theme is the Wild West, so that explains the stage coach and they have set up a wild wild west town.
This family checked out the maze on Oct. 12 – I think it is funny that just two weeks ago they were wearing shorts to check out the maze and now I am sitting here watching the snow falling.
I did some asking around about this and I found someone who did the maze last year – you can go at night and try the maze in the dark. They also have hay rides and a farm market too.

Happy Harry the Saturday Mechanic will be on hand to help deconstruct the car and see what’s inside. While I hate to see a grand wagoner go to waste, I think this sounds like a pretty neat exhibit for kids and adults.
