MIDLAND, TX-It's been almost a year since a tragic train accident in Midland claimed the lives of four American war heroes.
In memory of the victims and in support of all military personnel, the Fiddlesticks Farms designed a very special maze that reads "show of support...hunt for heroes."
Fiddlesticks Farms owner Matt Norton says the idea to remember the victims of last year's crash came to him during a morning drive.
Norton was crossing the intersection, where last year a parade float was slammed into by a train. Now four crosses and flags mark the spot where four heroes died unexpectedly.
"I saw the four crosses and flag in the background and I said that would be a really cool picture," said Norton.
In that moment he knew what this year's maze design would be.
It took over three days to construct, but he says the end result was worth every second.
This year’s 15-acre corn maze is unlike any other.
"This years maze is going to be the most difficult corn maze we’ve ever had in Midland County," said Norton.
The maze will also help remember four men whose service to their country will always live on.
They're still in the process of putting final touches to the farm, but it's set to open up this Saturday, October 5, 2013.
