SANDUSKY, Ohio — The newest Prayers From Maria sunflower field is nearly ready to bloom.
That’s according to the foundation’s latest Instagram post.
For years, the charity grew a sunflower field that has always been housed in Avon. However, earlier this summer organizers planted the latest Maria’s Field of Hope next to Cedar Point’s Express Hotel located at 1201 Cedar Point Drive. Visitors do not need to enter the amusement park to visit the field.
They say the sunflowers “have not completely popped yet but they are nearly ready!”
Organizers are excited for the upcoming blooming season and encourage people to visit Maria’s Shop at the field which is opening Saturday, then daily from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Maria’s Field of Hope at Avon still needs a couple more weeks to fully bloom.
