CANTON, NC (WLOS) — Fall means more outdoor activities, like seasonal corn mazes.
In 2019, one in Canton honors Riley Howell.
“He’s kinda like a local hometown hero,” said Skipper Russell, owner and operator of the Cold Mountain Corn Maize. “If he didn’t do what he done, there’s no telling how many people might have lost their life. So he gave his life to save a bunch of them.”
This year’s corn maze pays tribute to the young man killed earlier this year, stopping a gunman at UNC Charlotte.
