It was a short-lived season for an area sunflower maze.

The Sun Flower Maze at Country Junction in Bradford has closed for the season. The late-summer attraction announced earlier this week that the sunflowers have past their prime-prettiness. An announcement on Facebook reads: "We are sad to announce that the mazes are closed for the season. The weather this week has pushed the flowers past their prettiest and they are drooping now. We will have pumpkins and cornstalk out front for sale this weekend and there will be some cut sunflowers as well. Thank you to everyone that came out and enjoyed our farm. See you again next year."

The sunflower mazes opened for the season September 3.

Now that fall as arrived, spooky season is upon us. Fright at the Fort returns to Fort Knox this October after a two-year hiatus. Organizers of the five nights of fright are already hard at work bringing the creepy event back, bigger than ever before. A change this year will be online ticket sales only. Tickets went on-sale earlier this month via Eventbrite.

According to organizers, "Previous years have caused traffic jams for our neighbors, parking problems, rushed guest experience, staff exhaustion, and many other behind-the-scenes challenges. We are hoping to have a better experience for our guests with these crowd control measures."

Fright At The Fort 2022 Dates:

  • October 15
  • October 22, 23
  • October 29, 30

Tickets will not be sold at Fort Knox, and guests will be turned away if tickets were not purchased in advance. Tickets will be sold for specific one-hour time slots for each night of Fright. Ticket sales close at 4:30 P.M. each night.

True Events That Happened In Maine That Should Be Made Into Horror Movies

From time to time you see a local headline that reads like the synopsis to a horror movie. Maine has seen its fair share of grizzly murders, ghost stories, and possible proof of cryptid beats in the woods. While some stories may be hard to prove true, their basis is believable enough to live in infamy in local folklore. Here are five movie-grade events that happened in Maine that we'd watch if turned into a horror flick.

Take A Forbidden Look Inside Frozen Fort Knox

Fort Knox is closed for the season. While winter visitors can roam the grounds, the interior of the fort is closed off from the general public. If you browse through the photos below, you'll see why the fort is strictly off-limits until spring. That being said, we were given permission to enter the fort to create this gallery.

Again, the fort is closed from November through April. Do not attempt to enter the interior of Fort Knox. Entering the fort during the closed months is trespassing, and very dangerous.
