“Frozen” comes to Wabasha’s SeptOberfest October 17, 2017


THE WORLD OF ELSA and Anna and Olaf is mostly foreign to me. But to anyone with young kids, those are wildly popular characters from the hit 2013 Disney animated film “Frozen.”



So it was a smart move on the part of SeptOberfest organizers in Wabasha to theme a straw maze after the movie.



Set along the main drag through this Mississippi River town in southeastern Minnesota, the “Frozen” Straw Maze features handcrafted characters from the film staged atop straw bales.



When kids aren’t tracing the winding trail or climbing atop bales, they can rock and bounce on mini horses or scoot down one of two slides propped against bales.



The “Frozen” maze presents just another fun and engaging free activity for families visiting Wabasha during SeptOberfest. This is my kind of family-friendly small town.


FYI: This concludes my three-part series on three key family-focused aspects of SeptOberfest. Click here to read my first post about Zootopia on the RiverFront. And click here to view my post about the Pumpkin Patch. This fest runs until October 21.

    As Izzy gets older and begins to understand and enjoy movies, kids movies will not be so foreign to you, guaranteed! Enjoy them, some of them are great. Only problem I have encountered is watching them over and over again……..

    Yup you got that right!
