After all that fun, there is lots of traditional festival foods to chose from. La Union is great and not too scary a choice to celebrate the halloween season.

2. Mesilla Valley Corn Maze

Another day, another maze. This maze has small town perks compared to La Union. It’s nice to take a drive, view the fall leaves and scenery and enjoy a hayride to the pumpkin patch. This maze is much smaller, which makes it more appealing for a quick dose of fun. It includes duck races, hamster wheels and a cute country store. Along with other various activities, this maze creates an ideal, short but sweet, homely experience.
