In addition to the popular Fall Festival, which features a corn maze, jumping pillows, a petting zoo, and more, Sever's has adapted to the pandemic to offer something for the family in its new Stories, Riddles & Rhymes drive-through storytime on the festival grounds in Shakopee.

For this, Sever's teamed up with local artist Brian Sobaski to create a 3/4-mile trail that winds through tree farms, cornfields and prairies, featuring large-scale illustrations of a chicken, a squirrel named Hayley and more. 

Stories, Riddles & Rhymes began Aug. 21 and runs on Thursdays-Sundays until Nov. 1. The Fall Festival, which is sporting an Amazon theme for its 24th season, runs Sept. 11-Nov. 1.
