It was a short-lived season for a sunflower maze in the area.
The Sun Flower Maze at Country Junction in Bradford is closed for the season. The late summer attraction announced earlier this week that the sunflowers are past their prime. An announcement on Facebook reads: “We are sad to announce that the mazes are closed for the season. The weather has pushed the flowers past their best this week and they are now drooping. We will have pumpkins and corn stalks for sale outside this weekend and there will be some cut sunflowers too. Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed our farm. We’ll see you again next year.”
The Sunflower Mazes opened for the season on September 3rd.
Now that fall is here, the spooky season is upon us. Fright at the Fort returns to Fort Knox this October after a two-year hiatus. organizer of five nights of terror are already working hard to bring back the spooky event, bigger than ever. One change this year will only be online ticket sales. Ticket sales went on sale via Eventbrite earlier this month.
According to the organizer “The past few years have resulted in traffic congestion for our neighbors, parking issues, rushed guest experiences, staff exhaustion and many other behind-the-scenes challenges. We hope to have a better experience for our guests with these crowd control measures.”

Tickets are not sold at Fort Knox and guests will be turned away if tickets are not purchased in advance. Tickets are sold for specific one-hour time slots for each night of Fright. Ticket sales end at 4:30 p.m. each evening.
Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory will close for the season on October 31st.

From time to time you’ll see a local headline that reads like a horror movie synopsis. Maine has seen its fair share of grizzly murders, ghost stories, and possible evidence of cryptic beats in the woods. While some stories are difficult to prove, their basis is believable enough to live in disgrace in local folklore. Here are five cinematic quality events that happened in Maine that we’d watch if made into a horror movie.
Get a forbidden look inside the frozen Fort Knox
Again, the fort is closed from November to April. Do not attempt to enter Fort Knox interior. Entering the fortress during the closed months is trespassing and very dangerous.
