Coshocton, Ohio, June 5, 2018 — Coshocton’s first Sunflower Festival dates have been released.
Coshocton KOA and McPeek’s Mighty Maze introduce their first Sunflower Festival. Visitors to the festival get to explore over three acres of sunflowers showcasing twenty varieties of flowers. “We want to bring new ideas and fun to our community,” said Ryan McPeek, co-owner of Coshocton KOA. “Several of our friends had been encouraging us to plant a sunflower field and the idea grew on us”.
“We want to make the event an experience and more than just a big field of sunflowers,” said McPeek. “We planted four unique areas of the field to create a beautiful display you can’t find anywhere else.” At the entrance of the field, there are display plots showcasing 10 varieties of sunflowers. The “Sea of Yellow” is a huge field of 5-6 ft tall classic yellow sunflowers. The “Land of Giants” includes towering 12-foot-tall sunflowers that are made into teepee-like structures. Fuzzy dwarf Teddy Bear sunflowers surround the towering sunflower houses. “The Wilds” features a jungle of all the different sunflower types. In addition to the classic yellow colors, guests will find a mixture of lime, plum, red, and fiery orange.
In The Wilds & the Sea of Yellow, guests may each cut a sunflower, which is included with every ticket, or pick their pre-purchased 6, 12, or 18 sunflowers from a mixture of 20 different varieties.
Tickets are available for purchase at www.ohiosunflower.com. Pre-purchased tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Each ticket includes admission, a wagon ride to the fields, and one sunflower of the guest’s choice, plus access to the kids’ fun park, food trucks, and vendors. Tickets are limited and must be purchased online to ensure admission to the event.
The festival will last for three days, August 17th, 4 – 9 PM; 18th, 10 AM – 5 PM; and 19th, 12 PM – 6 PM, 2018 and is located at 24688 County Road 10, Coshocton, OH 43812.
