Dinosaurs in the Amazing Maize Maze in Albuquerque

There are only a few days left for you to enjoy the 14th Annual Corn Field Maze in Albuquerque. If you are visiting the Duke City this weekend consider a trip throughout the 7 acre corn field Maze. It’s also a great idea for an unusual date night or family outing. This weekend will be the second, and last chance to do the Starlight Maze. The Albuquerque Astronomy Society will be on hand as well with telescopes for your stargazing pleasure.
