Saturday, August 1st at 10am-4pm - FREECITH

Come out and join Arthur and The Cat in the Hat at CPTV Kids Day at the Sunflower Maze. Two of PBS' favorite characters will help open this year's Sunflower Maze and will visit with children of all ages. Bring your camera for photos with these lovable and timeless characters. 

SteveSongs: Mr. Steve from PBS Kids

SteveSongs brings his entertaining, interactive and educational musical journey back to the Apple Barrel on Sunday, Aug 17th. Bring a chair or blanket to the Apple Barrel tent and enjoy a great day with the family. Steve blends participatory songs, clever stories and great melodies that really gets the crowd jumping -- from exuberant children flocking towards the stage, to the moms bouncing babies with the beat, to the parents and grandparents singing and grooving along.


Library Programs at the Sunflower Maze

Throughout the month of August, Lyman Orchards is partnering with many of our local libraries to host story times and other programs. We are thrilled with the excitement that our partner libraries have shown around the Bookworm-themed Sunflower Maze. We are continuing to add more libraries to the calendar so check back often.
