Special Events

OPENING DAY, OCT. 4, IS BIG FOOT/BIG VALUE PROMO!

The 2014 season at Maris Farms opens on Saturday, Oct. 4th with one of its “biggest” promotional ideas ever as well as one of its “biggest” maze themes ever – the “Sasquatch” corn maze! Our radio partner – XYZ – will be sponsoring the BIG FOOT/BIG VALUE promo that opening day Saturday, when all who visit the farm wearing a BIG FOOT costume will receive 7 tokens (valued at $1 each) to be used toward any of the following “pay-for” activities at the farm – corn shooters, pumpkin blasters, paintball safari, trout fishing, pony rides and camel rides. The tokens cannot be used for the Monster Truck, zip lines, food or concession stands or to pay for pumpkins.

Just show your identification and you will receive the special discount. Valid ONLY Oct. 5-31, 2013 and not combinable with any other discounts or specials made available.


PIG RACES
: Maris Farms, KMPS and several other partners helping ‘raise some bacon’ for St. Jude’s with their racing pigs

Maris Farms and several other sponsors are teaming up again to help raise money in St. Jude’s tireless cause to find a cure for cancer with a matching fund donation during the 2014 Triple Pig Crown racing series.

We head into our seventh season hosting what has now become one of the most popular attractions at Maris Farms. The season-long series is derived from horse racing’s Triple Crown and is intended to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. More than $20,000 has been raised for cancer-research hospital through this month long event since it started in 2008.

On a small round track near the animal barn, several races will again occur during the course of a weekend day and fans will often cheer for their favorites – like they did with Jimmy FalLOIN, Arnold SchwartzenHOGGER and David LetterHAM in 2012 – as they burn a little bacon around the 50-meter race track.

In addition to the normal weekend races, there will be three marquee races – The PIGtucky Derby (Oct. 11th, 2 pm), The SQUEAKness (Oct. 18th, 2 pm) and The BOARmont Stakes (Oct. 25th, 2 pm).

Race fans place mock bets during the weekend races on the pig(s) they feel will win, and that money is donated to St. Jude. In return, each “betting” fan receives a complimentary pig nose and if the pig they bet on wins, they are automatically entered into a drawing for additional prizes. Other participating “pig” partners include Anytime Fitness, Westside Pizza, Wal-Mart, Spirit Halloween Stores, Smith Brothers Farms, American Thunder Monster Truck and Sweet Kettle Corn – all of whom are contributing either prizes or funds for this special cause.
