Embrace the Fall Colours by Exploring Eastern Manitoba

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall! The days are a tad chillier, the leaves are changing into brilliant colours, and Eastern Manitoba is transforming into a Fall playland! Embrace the fall colours by visiting Eastman and experiencing our adventures. From corn mazes, birding to the simple calmness of hiking, you won’t be able to help but fall in love with Fall.

Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary

Alfred’s Hole Goose Sanctuary is definitely an experience you won’t soon forget. Starting in 1939, this is a sanctuary with a story behind it that will make your heart melt and shows the importance of respecting and loving not just our Geese but many other animals and plants. They have many interpretive buildings, displays and, of course, Geese and various other birds and wildlife.

As Geese are preparing to make their way down to the south, this is the perfect time of year to visit to view wildlife and embrace the Fall colours!

Corn Mazes

Embrace the Fall colours by venturing into one of the best Fall activities – corn mazes! Not only do you get to immerse yourself in the outdoors, but you can test your navigation skills in fields of corn and enjoy various other activities that are perfect for a fun, memorable time. Check out some of Eastern Manitoba’s mazes:

A Maze in Corn – At A Maze in Corn, you can trek through a corn maze, climb the giant hay bale pyramid, and meet lambs, bunnies, kittens, and goats at the petting zoo and see the grounds in style – while riding along on a hayride, of course! Also, in mid-September, you can find freshly grown squash, sweet corn, local honey, and pumpkins at the Pumpkin Barn.

On October 1, be prepared to be scared as the Haunted Forest comes alive and the creatures start awakening. This interactive outdoor experience is sure to put anyone who dares to enter in the Halloween and Fall spirit and . . . sends chills down your body. For those with small children, the 3:30 to 5:30 time slots are more family-friendly so the whole family can have a spooktacular good time!

Deer Meadow Farms – Deer Meadow Farms creates a new design for their ten-acre corn maze each year – and this year is bigger and better than ever! This year Deer Meadow Farms has three amazing mazes to explore. As a tribute to First Nations Peoples, the farm has created the Turtle Island Corn Maze, Every Child Matters kids’ maze (easy for all to experience) and The Corn Trail (perfect if you have small children). The Turtle Island Corn Maze is their largest maze yet and features six trivia signs throughout the maze.

After conquering the maze, you can take full advantage of the many attractions they have on-site like the Pumpkin Patch, petting zoo, Bale Pyramid, Tired Mountain, nine-hole Farmer Golf and much more! You can also take a ride on the Wagon Train and visit Deer Meadow Farms’ Wild Game Preserve, where you can spot their rescued herd of Fallow Deer. On the ride, you learn about Fallow Deer, habitats, eco-systems and food chains.

Don’t forget to stop by in October to visit one of Manitoba’s most terrifying and thrilling experiences – The Forbidden Forest and Haunted Hayride. Deer Meadow Farms goes all out for Halloween; with eighteen larger-than-life sets and fifteen acres of Forest with nightmarish creatures and full special effects with lights, sound, fog and SFX, this is an experience you won’t soon forget!
