ATKINS, Iowa (AP) -- An eastern Iowa farm has found a creative way to celebrate "Today" show weatherman Al Roker's 60th birthday.

Bloomsbury Farm in Atkins has put together a 10-acre corn maze that shows Roker's face and reads, "Happy 60th Al."

Farm owners Dave and Karen Petersen have chosen a different theme for their corn maze each year for more than a decade. They work with The Maize Company, which designs and cuts the corn.

Karen Peterson says the couple chose Roker because "he seems like a great guy." They also appreciate his charity work.

The corn maze took six hours to cut and includes two miles for the public to explore. It formally opens during the Labor Day weekend and runs through Halloween.
