Summers' Farm's eighth annual Fall-for-All Festival promises to be fun-for-all this month.

Everything autumn will be on display during this seasonal festival. The traditional pumpkin patch, animal barnyard and hayrides are joined this year by a 5-acre corn maze. Two miles of trails lead guests through 250,000 cornstalks in an intricately designed mystery maze. Those who solve the mystery correctly may win a prize through a random drawing.

Located at Summers' Farm, the Fall-For-All Festival is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every weekend in October starting Saturday. Admission is $5 per person and free for children 2 and under. Summers' Farm is at 5614 Butterfly Lane in Frederick. For directions or more information, call 301-620-9316 or visit www.summers

Fall Harvest Days take place Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Carroll County Farm Museum, 500 S. Center St. in Westminster.
