If you’re looking for a Halloween-themed outing this weekend, you should definitely check out McMaze.

I visited McMaze last October, on a beautiful sunny day during the week. I was there on my own, having just finished up a mushroom farm tour in Eastern Ottawa (see my Continental Mushroom article here).
