'Peanuts' corn mazes crop up for 50th anniversary of 'It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown'


Get ready for a Halloween treat, Peanuts fans.

According to the Post, "several of the mazes will feature political slogans, such as 'Snoopy for Prez'" in honor of the upcoming presidential election. 

Guests also will get a chance to watch the iconic "Great Pumpkin" special, first broadcast in 1966, at the farms. (And if you can't make it to one of the farms, don't fret: The special airs at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday on ABC.)
