Crow Homecoming to be at McPeek’s Mighty Maze

| October 29, 2015

COSHOCTON – It’s the time of year when the crows make their winter home in Coshocton. In celebration of this event, the Pomerene Center for the Arts will be hosting their annual Crow Homecoming at McPeek’s Mighty Maze located at Colonial Campgrounds from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7. The giant dinosaur-themed corn maze will be going all crow with crow-related activities that are fun for all ages.

Make your own crow wings and then ride on extreme air like a crow. Show off your skills when you bounce and do tricks in the air. There will also be crow art and a story corner. Scott Butler, who has been doing research on Coshocton, will be leading the story and history corner. He will also give crow facts and history with a slide presentation.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Evan Abood’s band, Blackbird Project. Show off your inner crow during the crow-calling contest with the chance to win prizes. Mike Bechtol, who won the contest last year, will be running the event.

“He comes dressed all in black,” said Ann Cornell of the Pomerene Center. “He has the crow moves. He is totally crow. It’s just fun to watch him.”

You will also have the opportunity to test your crow knowledge during the Are You Smart as a Crow contest. There will also be wagon rides and a bonfire. Canal Quilters have donated a quilt that will be raffled off during the event.

Tickets are $9 and can be purchased at the Pomerene Center for the Arts located on Mulberry Street in Coshocton or online at www.pomerenearts.org. The ticket price includes all activities and free hot crow-crow (cocoa). Crowtown Pizza and other concessions will also be available for purchase.

“It will be a nice time to just come out and have some lunch,” said Cornell. “If you haven’t been out to the maze, it’s a chance to come out and see it, or if you already have been to the maze, it’s a time to put it to bed.”
