HAMPTONVILLE — Kids of all ages were having an egg-cellent time at the Alpha & Omega Corn Maze on Saturday. The 20-acre agri-tourism center features a host of farm fun from a corn box to carriage rides and more. For the second year in a row, the maze has featured a helicopter Easter egg drop.
Kids and parents alike watched in a-maize-ment as a helicopter circled the complex dropping hundreds of brightly colored plastic Easter eggs. Kids quickly scrambled out to the field to collect the eggs. All children at the event received a prize from the prize table.
The Easter Bunny himself made an appearance as did Princess Elsa and the Chic-Fil-A cow.
Lori Walker, co-owner of the Alpha & Omega Corn Maze, said they were pleased with the turnout this year. Last year the maze had a single egg drop but this year they added three separate times for egg drops from the helicopter.
