Halloween is now behind us, but the fall festivities continue until the turkey hits the table.
At the Barton Hills Farm Fall festival and corn maze in Bastrop, take a trip though winding sorghum, but with a Texas twist. Staffers on the farm say they use sorghum crop instead of corn because it is more heat resistant and grows quickly.
This year, the maze is in the shape of Willie Nelson in honor of his birthday. You can make your way through the winding paths by answering trivia questions.
Take a look at some of the fun in this “Local Wonders” in the video above.
The Great Texas Supper” painting was the idea of LSA Burger Co. owners Jon Christopher Davis and John “Sparky” Pearson. Icon Studios in Dallas brought it to life. The painting depicts a scene similar to “The Last Supper,” and Jesus is still there, but he’s joined by (from left): George Jones, Selena, Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings, Scott Joplin, Janis Joplin, Bob Wills, Willie Nelson, Freddy Fender, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Holly and T-Bone Walker.

This beautiful artful rendition of Willie Nelson was created by Austin Artist Tom Runkle. Willie Nelson signed this piece, and it was auctioned off to raise funds in support of Farm Aid and all the good work they do.
“I am an Austin artist that does mirror portraits of iconic musicians. This is my latest Willie for my son’s butcher shop. I have done so many Willies over the years, I have lost count. I have done shows at the Continental Club Gallery, and many other places, and he is always the first to sell.
If you would like to see others, check out my Facebook page Tom Runkle-Music to Mirrors. At 67, I find inspiration in what Willie is doing at 80, I can only hope to be as productive if and when I hit that mark. “

An Austin baker that doesn’t even have a retail store yet took the Internet by storm after creating a “Willie Nelson” cake.
Natalie Sideserf has always had a love for baking but it wasn’t until her friends and family urged her to enter a baking contest in Austin that she realized she could turn her passion into a career.
Unsure of what kind of cake to enter in the contest, Natalie finally decided to create this bust of the Red Headed Stranger and set to work crafting this likeness of Texas’ favorite son.
Her entry won, in fact she swept all divisions in the contest, and when her brother posted the pic on Reddit that same day, it immediately reached No. 1 on the site and was seen by over 1.2 million people worldwide.
Sideserf combined her passion and creativity and began baking professionally earlier this year in rented kitchens around Austin and will open her first brick and mortar store there later this year.
As if opening a business isn’t enough stress, Natalie is getting married next week at Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse and is baking the wedding cake for the ceremony. Of course it’s no traditional wedding cake; her fiancé is a big horror movie fan so she is baking a horror themed wedding cake.
You can see more of Natalie’s creations on her website including the cakes she made recently for Keith Urban and the American Idol judges while they were in Austin filming American Idol.
