know that Farmer Kurt, his father Hermann and his brother Eric are all members
of Chester Volunteer Fire Company # 1, and they take their participation very
seriously. The Alstede Farms Family and Staff know
how dangerous firefighting is and what an amazing job firefighters do
protecting our communities, so this year we decided to honor all firefighters
with our Giant Corn Maze depicting firefighters in action.
weekend throughout the Fall (and on Columbus Day) there will be members of the
Chester Volunteer Fire Company # 1 in attendance with a piece of firefighting
equipment. We’ll have an official Ribbon
Cutting Ceremony on September 20th at 6pm, which will kick off
Firefighters’ Weekend. In attendance
will be Firefighters from Chester Volunteer Fire Company # 1 and a Keynote
Speaker from the New Jersey firemen’s Home.
All guests in attendance that evening will receive free admission to the
Corn Maze. Family Fun Activities (Pony
Rides, Moon Bounce and more) will run from 10am to 5pm on both Saturday and
Sunday. And there will be free admission
to Pick Your Own for all firefighters and their families – be sure to wear your
fire company or department shirt to let us know who you are!
Corn Maze is divided into a children’s maze and an adult maze. The Cat in the Tree Children’s maze focuses
on fire safety, while the Five Alarm Adult Maze focuses on history and trivia associated
with firefighting. Visit all of the
stations in the maze and answer all the questions and you will win a
prize. Finally a portion of all of the
proceeds from the Giant Corn Maze will be donated to Chester Volunteer Fire
Company # 1 and the New Jersey Firemen’s Home in Boonton. The New Jersey Firemen's Home was
established in 1898 through the generosity of the Lathrop Family and by an act
of the New Jersey State Legislature to care for the aged, indigent and disabled
firefighters of New Jersey. Come on out,
celebrate and support your local firefighters and have a terrific time
navigating our Giant Corn Maze.
