Club-provided photo of Sounders-themed corn maze in Olympia.

This just in from the club.

WHAT: Annual Harvest Festival and five acre corn field maze featuring a likeness of Sounders FC goalkeeper Kasey Keller.

WHEN: October 1-31; Open daily from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.

WHERE: Schilter Family Farm; 141 Nisqually Cutoff Road S; Olympia, WA 98513; 360.459.4023

ADMISSION: $5 per person Monday-Friday; $10 per person Saturday and Sunday; Children two and under are free

The admission charge purchases an activity bracelet which will allow families to enjoy the corn maze, petting farm, hayrides, corn and pumpkin cannons, “round up railway” cow train, hay maze and hay jump in the 140-year-old barn and other activities.

HOW: The paths of the maze twist and turn while the object of the maze is not only to navigate through it, but to also hunt for the signs throughout the maze to answer the trivia questions about Kasey Keller’s outstanding soccer career.

“It’s certainly a unique tribute and very fitting given this is my hometown and my family has known the Schilter family for years and years,” said Sounders FC goalkeeper Kasey Keller. “I honestly don’t think too many other athletes can say they’ve had their likeness featured in a corn maze, and that is what makes it really cool to me. I hope a lot of fans can make their way to Olympia and enjoy it.”
