The Marini Corn Maze Park is Growing!

The maze park is action packed! Reach great heights on the 70-foot jumping pillow, search for hidden dinosaur bones in the corn house and slide down and explore inside the giant inflatables. As you enter the corn maze park, you can hear the swish of the balls being sunk in the basketball inflatable, the boing of kids rebounding in all directions off the jumping pillow, and the rubbing of the corn stalks as people second guess their route in the 10-acre corn maze.

Make it a family outing and stay for the day. The Marini Park Corn Maze Park continues to expand with new fun activities and outdoor attractions for all ages. This year the farm pushed back the maze by 100 feet to make room for the giant inflatables and maze park.
The Corn Maze Park now includes the following attractions:

  • Gigantic 70-foot jumping pillow
  • Corn house
  • Basketball inflatable
  • 5-in-1 Princess house
  • Disney inflatable
  • Sand lot
  • Rope maze
  • Tile maze
  • Finger Fortune Maze
  • Tunnel play structure

  • Mickey Mouse jump
  • Duck races
  • Trick or treat hayrides
  • Concession stand
  • Pumpkin patch
  • Flashlight nights
  • Special entertainment concert event (scheduled for October 20th)

Not ready to take the challenge of our 10-acre maze? The smaller 1-acre version of our corn maze and rope maze are great for younger maze explorers or first timers!

Come experience the bountiful harvest spirit and excitement at Marini Farm from now until November 2, 2013! For information on special events and attractions please visit our website.

Marini Farm Hosts Anti-Bullying Awareness Concert Event

Marini Farm brings music to farm in recognition of national anti-bullying month. The corn fields will be alive with music on October 20th for a special anti-bullying concert event. Spookley the Square Pumpkin, the official “Spokes Pumpkin” for National Bullying Prevention Month is present at the farm. Thousands of students across the country and Spookley will join forces to send an important very large orange message of support to students who have been bullied. A large inflatable Spookley greets maze visitors as they enter the maze park. The book, The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, is the story about a very special little pumpkin who teaches children that you can't judge a book, or a pumpkin, by its cover, and how being different is okay and how we shouldn’t tease others. Spookley invites you to “Dare to Be Square” and embrace the beauty of being different!

At the Marini Farm concert event, young performers will take the stage and perform their original anti-bullying songs along with other popular pop/rock music. Headliner, p.o.p. ALERT, will do a two-hour concert event which will include other solo performers who work hard to support anti-bullying programs. The “p.o.p.” in their band name represents the “power of people.”  This teen band is dedicated to anti-bullying awareness and prevention. They have performed to over 10,000 students at anti-bullying events in NY and New England, and they also support several other children’s charities.

p.o.p.ALERT is a co-ed band with layers of raw talent, rare vocal depth and fresh energy that attracts audiences of all ages. They are a five-member Boston based teen power-pop/alternative rock band comprised of four boys and one girl; Cameron, Johnny, Jesse, Alex, and Rachel. They range in age from 13 to 18. The band is female fronted, has two backup vocalists, and four award-winning musicians. The band was formed in November 2011 from an open audition process which attracted the best of the best teen performers from the greater New England area. The objective was to form a band which had male and female vocal depth, strong and well-balanced musicality, and be in a standalone class for its extreme raw talent. Since they started, they have performed in over fifty engagements and have been nominated for many music awards.

Under the guidance of their Manager, Patty Duffey, owner of The Young Performers Club and Music On & Up, they will be positioned to rise up the charts as a top co-ed teen pop/rock group. The music is upbeat teen rock/pop songs with a bit of country spark. Also, working with the band as their Music Director is Marc Delcore, who is also Brittany Spears Music Director.  As the management team says, “This is raw talent all together!”  The band breathes a fresh new style and teen class to the pop/rock music scene.

They have also been nominated for numerous industry awards for their anti-bullying song, “I Don’t Deserve It”, and recently released a follow-up song, “One Day”, which provides the message that positive thinking can make a difference. At the concert event the band will debut their newest song, “High Five”, also an inspirational and positive energy song. They work with top industry writers and producers and will be adding several new originals in the coming months. They were awarded the Limelight Magazine “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” in 2013. Recently, The Bully Movie nominated them as “Upstander of the Week” for their dedication to supporting anti-bullying programs and spreading their message with their music and videos.

The concert event starts at 11:00 AM on October 20th in the corn maze park area next to the anti-bullying mascot, the square orange pumpkin Spookley. Marini has participated in the globally-recognized Spookley the Square Pumpkin bullying prevention program for the last several years. Stop by and dance, sing and breathe in the fresh fall air at this interactive concert event. Prizes will be provided for dance contests and other fun contests organized by the band.  To learn more about the concert headliner, p.o.p. ALERT, visit their social sites below:
