I found out about this event last night and checked it out today. More than 100,000 sunflowers are in bloom at Lee Farms in Tualatin, Oregon, this month. The farm is open Friday through Sunday until August 30 for the public to wander through the fields, pick flowers to take home, go on hayrides, and get lost in a sunflower maze.
If you’re hungry after exploring the fields and finding your way out of the maze, grab some lunch, dinner, or snacks at the white tent in the grassy area next to the outdoor music stage. Donuts, pies, and other treats are available from the bakery and country market, as well as garden supplies and seeds.
Check the live music schedule on Lee Farms’ Facebook page.
This year, tickets are timed. General admission is $17 per person when tickets are purchased online and $20 onsite. Each ticket is for a two-hour visit.
Parking is free.
