First off, how cool is this? What you behold here is the beautiful work of Bill Irons, a 44-year old married father of four and a devoted Reds fan, who turned his massive 12-acre corn patch into a Cincinnati Reds-themed maze.
This marks the 13th consecutive year that the Lebanon, Ohio native has sculpted such a creative design into his patch of corn. Last year the theme was zoo animals and in 2007 it was a Bengals-themed maze.
“It’s not perfect,” Irons said. “But I’m happy with the way it turned out.”
As part of Irons’ agreement with the Reds to use their logos, $1 for each paying customer will go toward the Reds Community Fund.
Here is some more information on how you can see this cleverly-designed piece of landscape for yourself.
