A fun annual fall tradition in Missoula will be opening its gates for an exciting tenth season.

Starting this Sunday, September 16, explorers of the MIssoulaMaze can join "Mountain Men of the West" (this year's theme) and chart their way through the maze or be guided by clue sheets that test your knowledge of the nation's early adventurers, some of which will be waiting for you on your journey through the maze.

To celebrate their tenth year, MissoulaMaze will be adding some extra surprises and prize giveaways throughout the season. Make sure you take advantage of everything the maze complex has to offer, including the obstacle course, petting zoo, pumpkin patch, concessions and night maze.

Starting September 16, MissoulaMaze will be open Sundays noon to 8:00 p.m., Thursdays 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Fridays noon to 5:00 p.m. through the end of October. Additional Wednesday and Saturday night dates are scheduled October 3, 10, 17, 20, 24, 27 and 31. Admission prices are $5 for children ages 4 - 12, $8 for everyone age 13 - 65 and $5 for those 66 and older. The little tykes age 3 and under get in free. The maze is located at 1010 Clements Road and any additional a-maze-ing info you might need is right here.

We wish them a great tenth season and hope all of you have a great time.
