This is exactly as it appears, a stunning 15-acre corn maze celebrating the Washington Capitals on their Stanley Cup championship.

Bowles Farm in Clements, Md. wows spectators annually with its unique maze designs, the planning for which usually begins in February.

But the farm flipped the script this June, right when the planting phase normally begins, when the Caps closed out their improbable Stanley Cup run with the championship.

Three months of careful maintenance later: voila!

This year's corn maze – which centers around the Caps' pervious logo featuring the Capitol Building – opens Sept. 29 and runs for five weekends, ending Oct. 28.

General admission tickets to the farm are $10 (cash or checks only) and free for children ages three and under. In all, the maze is about three miles in length if you walk all the trails.

It's also a pumpkin farm (pumpkins not provided with admission) and has a number of themed weekends planned. On Rock The Red Weekend – tentatively scheduled for Oct. 6-7 – you'll get $1 off general admission for showing up wearing Caps gear.

Outside of the corn maze, Bowles Farm has a bunch of children-themed activities, including barrel rides, straw-jumping pits, slides, face-painting and a straw maze. Additional information can be found on the Bowles Farms website.
