“Candy Corn” for short…
Arrives on the Farm September 28, 2018! This will be a special day of fun with the witches.
SCHEDULE: Candice Cornelia joins Wick’a Dee Witch in the Farmland at 5:30 pm, and at the Spooky Trick-or-Treat Trail (Opens Oct. 8) from DUSK-9:00 pm, Fridays and Saturdays. Trick-or-Treating at the witches’ hut will be your favorite fall activity this year! They’ll both be back at the pavilion later to share some of their witchy moves on the dance floor with you and your kiddos, so grab a corn dog and “stick” around.
She actually calls them SCARE-icactures, because Candy Corn sketches YOU as a SCARECROW! And, yes, her sketches are FREE for children under 18 (limit one per child). She’ll even keep your sketch page safe and clean for you in the pavilion while you play and get dirty on the Farm (Just remember to pick up your SCARE-icature page before you leave!).
SCARE-icatures. A Candice Cornelia original. You’re gonna love the way you look as a SCARECROW!
HISTORY: Candice Cornelia the Witch (Candy Corn for short) joined our Farm Witch gaggle in 2015. When asked why she wanted to be a Farm Witch, she said, “Because I’ve always loved coming to the Farm during October. I think Wick’a Dee and the other witches are just adorable and fun additions to the Fall Season at the Staheli Family Farm. I’d like to mention that Halloween is my favorite holiday, and any chance to dress up and be theatrical is right up my alley . . . SPOOK ALLEY!”
A message from Candice Cornilia: explorer extraordinaire.
“Nyello my children of the candy corn! This year, at Staheli Family Farm, I’ll be leading some guided silly safari tours around the farm land! Come along with me and I’ll show you all the ins and outs and hidden secrets of the Farm. Will we see aliens, bigfoot, a chicken? Who knows what we’ll encounter on these impromptu adventures! You can either join me and my tour group as we go or just ask and I’ll start one on the spot and we’ll take off! I promise, you won’t lose any limbs this time… and if you do, then you can call me a “lint licker”. Sincerely yours, C.C.
TALENTS: Candy Corn is young and energetic. She has a hard time keeping all her “energy” inside! She’s wiggly, but she has taken the witch’s oath to try to hold still long enough for a photo with your little ones. When asked about her love of children, she said, “I can’t get enough of working with kids, and they like me, too (If I do say so myself! Snort!).”
Candice won the 2017 Sweepstakes and Best of Show at the county fair with her self-portrait, which can be seen hanging in the Old Farmhouse at Staheli Family Farm. (She does weirdly-great commission-art pieces on her days away.) She also won the Reserve Sweepstakes ribbon with her painting of dear old Wick’a Dee Witch, also hanging in the Farmhouse. Get tickets to our Witchy Weekend events to view Candice’s art gallery.
Candice also created our new mural en plein air, “Life is Better on the Farm”. Have you seen it???
SOMETHING NEW in 2018: She’s been putting her other talents to work this summer, preparing some original SCARECROW sculptures, face-hole photo ops, and fun cartoon signage to be showcased around the Farm. Be sure to notice her award-winning, comedic artwork and tag her in your photos with them! We’re sure you’ll want to follow “Candy Corn” around during your visits to the Farm in 2018!
Candy Corn will also be a featured entertainer during our
WITCHY WEEKENDS! Don’t miss the Witches Showcase, Saturday, October 6, 13, & 20 in the pavilion at 4:00 pm. FREE with paid admission!
Candy Corn is "Scary Cute". Wick'a Dee has some "Trick-or-Treats". Winnie raises "Monsters". Together, they had FUN at Kneaders! Witchy Weekends are coming up. Do you have your pointed hat and broom ready?Posted by Staheli Family Farm on Wednesday, October 5, 2016
